Custom Roman Shades|Sew Lovely By Kelly

Custom Roman Shades

Any Size.  Customer Supplies The Fabric.

Sew Lovely Roman Shades are made to order using your own fabric in any size.  Flat Classic Roman shades and Relaxed Roman Shades can be made with regular/light filtering lining or blackout lining.  They are fully functional and hardware is included!  We can help source and provide fabric if needed, but we prefer for customers to send us their own so we know it is exactly what the customer wants but please see our fabric recommendations and guidelines (click HERE) before sending fabric.  This is what makes Sew Lovely so unique... the customer is able to choose their own favorite decor fabric that matches their personal style, current decor and budget.  Customer fabric must be compliant with our policy and meet our standards. Mount options include both inside and outside mounted shades.

Our Ordering Process Is Easy!

We email back with a quote and the amount of yardage that will be needed for the project.

If the customer approves, a custom listing is set up via Etsy or an arrangement is made via email or phone to pay by PayPal, check or cash.

We create lovely roman shades for the customer using their fabric!

The beauty of custom window treatments is that you can have them made in any size you'd like and in any fabric.  You're not limited to store bought patterns and size options.  Many older homes have odd size windows and it may be hard to find a roman shade in a store to fit the window.  Sew Lovely shades are carefully handcrafted in a non-smoking and pet-free home.

A Little About Our Shades.

Flat/classic roman shades vs. relaxed roman shades...

Sew Lovely Roman Shades come in two styles, flat/classic and relaxed.  All of the shades on our page are flat roman shades.  Flat roman shades come with dowels that are secured inside or in pockets on the back of the shade and help form the defined pleats.  The folds are formed when the shade is pulled up.  The shades hang about 9" from the top of the wood when all the way up.  Every shade will fold a little differently, with more or less pleats, depending on the size of the shade.  When all the way down, the fabric lies flat against the window.  The face fabric wraps around the back about 1".   Roman shades come with 3 cords and a cord lock lift mechanism.  The shade locks into place when the cords are pulled to the left or right.  Each string controls a separate part of the roman shade (right, left, middle).  You may need to adjust them separately at times to get them straight across.  They are not completely child proof and we do not make cordless shades at this time.  As of April 2017, the shades have a white plastic break-a-way knob at the end of the 3 strings for child safety, so the strings will all break apart and not form a loop.  

Still, is recommended to tie off the cords up high if small children or pets are around.  Roman shades come attached to a 1x2 board on top and can be mounted inside the window casing or outside on the trim or wall.  Relaxed roman shades are similar to the flat style except they do not have dowels inside them, and they hang much looser.  The bottom is not a curve, as some styles are.  It's just a looser, more casual look than the flat roman shades.  When shades are extended all the way down, they are flat with no folds.

Wide Width Roman Shades

Roman shades over 48" wide will pleat a little differently than shades that are under 48" wide.  For wide shades, there will be seams down each side because the fabric needs to be sewn together to make the width, since standard fabric is 54" wide.  The pattern will be matched up so it is not obvious that there is a seam.  The wide roman shades come with plastic dowels and the pleats will not be as defined as more narrow shades.  They may hang looser due to the width.  You may wish to divide a large window up into 2 or 3 shades for a more defined looking roman shade.  As of 8/17/17, we no longer make shades over 51" wide due to the pleats being loose looking. 

Please read your custom order details carefully and make sure the measurements are accurate on your order.  If you need to update your measurements, please do so no later than 2 weeks after you placed your order because we may begin cutting and production.

Blackout Vs. Regular Liner

Our shades can be made with regular/light filtering lining or blackout liner.  Liner fabric is white.  We can also use the face fabric as the lining on back if you'd prefer.  You'd need extra yardage for this option.  Blackout liner provides total blockage of sunlight, whereas, regular liner will allow some light to filter through.  If your fabric is light weight or light in color and your shade has regular lining, the dowels may show slightly through the fabric when the sun shines.  Blackout liner will block the dowels completely from shining through. Normally, the dowels shining through does not affect the beauty of the shade, but if you do not like this look, you may wish to do the blackout option or provide a medium weight/heavier fabric.  For optimal blackout, you may wish to do an inside mount.  Some light might seep through the sides if doing an outside mount.  The outside mount projection is 1".

Ribbon Trim Roman Shades

Sew Lovely makes a lot of ribbon trimmed roman shades.  Labor is extra if you want trim added on.  We can put trim inset along the sides and bottom, or right along the edges.  We provide basic 1 1/2" grosgrain trim in many colors or the customer may provide their own trim.  Ribbon trimmed shades are a great way to tie a room together and look great if you want to use pattern in other places in your room but still want the shades to coordinate.  Sew Lovely can provide white canvas fabric to be used for ribbon trimmed shades.  

Faux Roman Shades

Faux shades are stationary shades that are perfect if you want the look of a roman shade but don’t need it to function. They can be raised and lowered but manually, and not by using cords or a pull. They’re mostly meant for design purposes and for looks only.
