Black and white striped drapery fabric!

After I failed to join the crowd of bloggers who have successfully painted horizontal striped drapery panels, I vowed to throw money at the project and track down fabric that would work for what I wanted.

It took quite a bit of googling, but I tracked down fabric with eight inch, black and white, stripes. Now, I need to track down someone to make the drapes for me because I have never touched a sewing machine and don't know the first thing about making drapery panels.

Charlottesville folks, do you know a seamstress who makes window treatments for reasonable rates?


  1. hi! can you please, please share where you found the horizontal stripe fabric? i have been scouring for hours w/ no luck. thanks so much!!!

  2. Ta da! It's a Braemore fabric, Sutton Stripe in the color "Domino". Be careful about ordering it without seeing the actual bolt. One year, "Domino" was a black and white striped fabric. The next year, the same color was a tan and black striped fabric. I found this out when I was flipping through books with an employee of a fabric store and we both came across "Sutton Stripe" in "Domino" and we had different fabrics.

  3. like the fabric choice....I appreciate it.

  4. Hi!

    Crazy to stumble upon you! That fabric is FABULOUS. I absolutely adore striped draperies and make and sell them in my shop. On top of making my own line of drapes, i'm always happy to work with customers' fabric!

    Send me a message if you're interested :)
