CUSTOMERS OWN MATERIAL
We at Blanche Field are delighted to utilize fabrics and trims supplied by our customers. We know the leading fabric and trim companies and can order the fabric you specify. If your material has a pattern or symmetry, we can recommend pleating styles and place the seams so as to create the effect you require. Or, as the shade image shows, we can sew folds on the bias for an elegant effect.
To determine how much fabric or trim to purchase, please refer to the following charts:
Amount of Material (for pleated shades):
Bottom diameter: 6-9″ – yards needed: 1.25
Bottom diameter: 10-14″ – yards needed: 1.75
Bottom diameter: 15-18″ – yards needed: 2
Bottom diameter: 19-22″ – yards needed: 2.5
Amount of Trim:
Use the formula below. Be sure to measure both top and bottom diameters if trim is to be applied to both.
Yards needed equals diameter (inches) x 3.5 / 36
