Waverly Lovely Lattice Living room drapes

So excited to have my living room drapes finally finished.  Such a tedious project but they turned out so great!  Love how they look with my freshly painted lamp.

The fabric is Waverly Lovely Lattice in Lagoon.  I purchased it from www.fabric.com.  It's a Sun N Shade fabric which I've never tried but I wanted them to be easy to wipe up especially since this room gets tons of kid traffic.

I used Janell's drapery tutorial at Isabella and Max rooms.  But I made my hem at the bottom REALLY big, like 10 inches so when the military moves us again and we have higher ceilings I can just unpick and hem again instead of needing new drapes.  I lined them with a drop cloth.

Love!  Love even more that they are finished.  Sewing drapes takes FOR-E-VER and ever.
