This unique valance is a casual take on a formal style and can be adapted to fit any size window by adding additional swag sections. Our instructions are for a valance that is 40 to 42 finished width. The information needed to add to or reduce the width is included. The finished length of the valance is approximately 21 at the swag, 18 at the middle jabot and 26 at the side jabots. The valance is trimmed in a bias band out of contrasting fabric.This valance works best when constructed out of a medium-weight decorative fabric.
We mounted our valance on hidden brackets constructed out of a 4 piece of 1 x 4 and angle irons.
