When wool drapes beautifully, it is because the panel has the internal structure to give it the freedom to hang naturally. For this Holland and Sherry wool blackout-lined and interlined ripplefold, my biggest concern was giving the header reinforcement and support without impeding the drop of the wool face. The ripplefold tape had to be sewn by machine, but all other sewing (apart from joining the widths) was done by hand. We got to use a full complement of hand stitches in this project for Susan Marocco Interiors.
This is a correctly made daisy chain:
And lastly, here you can see that the bottom hems were hand-sewn with a variation of the "interlocking stitch" to keep the stitches from pulling on the fabric.
