Insight on Scarf Swags

Scarf Swags are a more relaxed interpretation of the swag-and-jabot treatment. They can be short, meaning sill length or shorter, or long to the floor or gracefully puddling. Generally, a scarf treatment is generally created from one long piece of fabric. Lightweight fabrics with no right or wrong side, such as batiste, voile, lace, linen, and lawn, are particularly good choices because they fall into the soft fols that make this type of material so attractive.

Scarf treatments can be hung on poles, suspended from brackets, or tacked up with decorative hardware. Special brackets are also available to secure the fabric into various swag, tail, and rosette formations while remaining completely hidden from sight.

Scarf swags that are sill-length or shorter require some care to establish pleasing proportions. If the scarf is used alone, the tails should extend at least one third of the way down the window. Otherwise, the end product tends to look a bit skimpy.

A word about Tabbed Valances

With a tabbed valance, the drapery pole becomes an integral part of the window treatment. Because the tabs occur at intervals along the valance, this treatment is a wonderful way to showcase decorative rods and finials. Tabs can be made from wide or narrow strips of fabric, ribbon, or cord that complement or contrast with the main fabric of the curtain,

Hardware hangers, such as drapery rings or cafe clips, can substitute for the tabs. A flat valance, one that is the same width as the window, is called a banner valance, A fuller effect is created by selecting a valance that is at least one and a half times wider than the window
