I've purchased this book and have found that the directions are not at all easy to follow. Details are left out, and diagrams are few and far between. I wouldn't recommend it.

This book was my primary reference while I made shades for 13 windows, saving thousands of dollars over having them made by a workroom. Not only did the book provide inspiration by use of many pictures, I found the instructions to be more than adequate.

I have had this book as well as her other: drapes and swags for over 12 years. I have used both extensively and have been very happy with the finished results. Some are able to be simplified in steps but I found most to be well planned. I have done window treatments out of my home for over 5 years and these books were a wonderful resource. I only wish I had had her slipcover book as well!

Great book with photos as well as descriptions and drawings of different style curtains that may be obtained by reading the book. Walks you step by step from purchasing fabric, trimmings, mounting and riggings, etc,and making the actual curtains themselves. Definitely worth the money.

I, like another reviewer, noticed many details and instructions missing. Diagrams provided were pretty worthless. Good photos of what a project might look like if you are an experienced sewer & can read between the lines of the written instructions for the missing details. Cannot recommend, leaves much to be desired.
