What an excellent book! As a seamstress for many years and also a professionaly trained curtain maker I'm always on the look out for reference books to give me ideas for various projects. I'm also a keen miniaturist with a large collectors quality dolls house and purchased this book to use for that purpose. Be warned - there are no photos of finished items or 'how to do' instructions but for anyone trained in curtain making it will give you good ideas as it is chock a block with coloured sketches. You would still need a good knowledge of curtain making and comprehensive instructions from elsewhere to make some of the more complicated designs but if you just want a book to give you ideas, then go for this!
1000 illustrations plus tons of useful information. Draperies, Swags, Jabots, Shutters, Bedspreads, Valances, its all here in graphic detail. Illustrations by Patricia Howard, a leading interior design artist.
