Thank you for your response. A very basic question, but how do you best measure the exact amount of fabric lengthwise. I presume you would do the usual 2.5 times fabric width (depending on style and fabric) and then measure the drop around the top of the arch in several places and graduate your fabric accordingly - like you would with a shaped valence but the opposite way round, if that makes sense?
