I was so excited to get giant panels for such a great price. The ones I got for our bedroom were a nice heavy, almost canvassy material (I know nothing about fabrics, I'm sure it has a real name....) For our office, I got some lovely white ones that were a little lighter, but still nice and substantial. I washed them first, then I got out my iron and hem tape and went to town, measuring them for the exact length I wanted - barely gracing the floor - not too high but not too puddley. They looked great - I was pleased with my domestic textile skills!
|Just the length I wanted!|
I realize now that I should have let them hang for a few months before hemming them, giving gravity a chance to do its dirty work.
I'm super lazy, so I am not looking forward to the process of re-hem-taping these babies. Urgh. I'm also tempted to wash/dry these, but then I'm afraid I will ruin them.
This is why I can't have nice things. :)
