Madelyn Valance

© 2002 Pate-Meadows Designs, Inc.
  • This tailored valance with pleated underskirt can be adapted to fit any size window. The finished length of the valance is approximately 22” in length.
  • This valance works best when constructed out of a medium-weight decorative fabric with medium to lightweight contrasting fabric for the pleated underskirt.
  • The gusset section and side jabots are self-lined in the same fabric as the face fabric. The swag sections are lined in regular drapery lining; however, a decorative trim or piping should be added to prevent the lining from showing at the bottom of the treatment. The pleated underskirt is attached to regular drapery lining.
  • This valance is mounted on a dust board; either a 1 x 4 or 1 x 6 can be used depending on the projection desired.

    -The ruffled bottom underskirt can be altered to be a flat design for a simpler, more tailored look.



    These amounts are for a valance measuring 42” wide finished. See chart below for other window widths. These amounts are based on 54” wide fabric. Add extra fabric for matching of patterns.
