Hi there, does anyone else suffer with this problem and am I just being too critical of my own work? Sometimes when I hang roman blinds, especially ones that have interlining, the fabric bags a little, as opposed to lying completely flat. My method for making up is always no visible stitching on face fabric, ie. I am making catch threads between face fabric and interlining and interlining and lining, normally just along where the rod pockets sit. I think this eliminates the need for stab stitches. I do lightly iron the finished blind and when in place it goes up nicely into it's folds, but it's the look when down. Am I being over critical or is there a technique/trick I am missing here. You know the one that you can't learn from a class or book, only experience! Please help as I have a heap load of Roman Blind orders. Jan
