Buckram Fold Shade: with Lining and Interlining and Transparent Buckram

Did you see the Buckram-Fold Blackout shade method that I shared in July?

It's been a huge success for the workroom owners who have tried it for their own projects. The more I make buckram-fold Roman shades, the faster and easier it goes. It's my new favorite shade method!

If you missed it, here is a link to the how-to instructions and video: Buckram-Fold Blackout Shade

But not all shades are blackout lined. You can create a buckram-fold shade with sateen lining and interlining, if using translucent buckram. It works great! The sewing steps are a little different (and easier) than the method I shared for a buckram-fold blackout shade. You can find the how-to instructions below.

The buckram provides stability to the folds without looking stiff or bulky. In fact, when light shines through a shade made with lining, interlining and translucent buckram, you can't see anything at all! I recommend the transparent buckram from dofix No Sew. It's a lightweight, sheer woven buckram with adhesive on both sides. The rest of the shade can be constructed using your favorite supplies. and headrail lift system.
