Swags have been replaced by Scarves

Sheer ScarfSwags, once the mainstay of window treatment haute couture,  have bitten the dust and been replaced by more relaxed scarves. 

Scarves  can be draped on poles or over holdbacks placed around any shape of window. Only your imagination limits the possiblities.

Banding, as seen on this sheer linen-like fabric, in a contrasting color defines the beautiful cascading hem. 

Although it appears to be a straight panel of fabric, it actually has a shape built in to allow it to hang in a more pleasing swag than just a straight scarf. Weights added to the low points of the jabot section helps this light weight fabric hang just right.

It is all these little details that make a simple treatment like a scarf truly beautiful!

    Just a hint, Ellen dear. If you want people to take your claim of "attention to detail" seriously, you might want to proofread your posts. Remember, spell check is your friend!
