Sometimes Fake is Fine! As in Fur, Faux Fur is just fine, preferable to real fur in fact! Sometimes Fake is not okay, as in designer purses, or a medical degree.
I'm not a huge fan of fake window treatments. I don't like it when there's a thin set of drapery panels on either side of a large window that clearly aren't able to cover the whole window and are just there decoratively.
So with my anti-faux stance I set out to get a custom roman blind made for our Master Bathroom window . . . a $200 quote later and suddenly faux didn't seem so bad! The window is completely frosted, you can't see in or out, I was buying a blind strictly for fashion not for function, So why not go faux (as long as it looked fully functional)!
Then sew big loops into the fabric making sure each loop covers the next loops stitches. Make one loop and sew it together at the top, then make another loop, and so on.
Total cost was:
1 yard of fabric $12.99
1 yard of interfacing $3.50
$16.49 that's way better then $200!!!!!
