The Best Type of Fabric For Your Window Treatment

Oct 1, 2015

With so many beautiful fabric options and websites out there it is pretty difficult to choose your fabric for your Sew Lovely window treatments!  The best type of fabric for roman shades is a decor fabric that is medium weight. Most sites will have a section called "decor or drapery fabric."  Certain fabric like satin, jersey knit or very thick or thin fabric would not work great for the roman shades.  I love the fabric choices on Premier Prints is a very nice fabric with so many great pattern options. You can also use a shower curtain for a roman shade, provided the curtain is wide enough.   Cotton blends and linen work great for shades and drapes.
