Wool Ripplefold

We love Ripplefold as much for its clean, practical sensibility as for its knack for showcasing a fine fabric by allowing it to cascade in cool, serene columns.
Fabricated for Susan Marocco Interiors,  the Holland and Sherry wool panels hang from a mitered square Svelte pole in Silver Leaf from J. L. Anthony (with 8" returns) and are trimmed with wide embroidered banding from Travers.
To avoid calculation errors, we knew it was smartest and easiest to mock up the track before planning the fabrication.  With the snaps labeled, we were able to trim the widths of the wool before joining so the seams fell to the back folds.
Mocking up the lead edge also ensured correct trim placement.  With "buttmaster" carriers, the lead edges abut each other instead of overlapping, so the trim was sewn in from the edge to allow it to show on the front of the panel.
There is much more to the story of these draperies......  I'm off to the city now, so more later!
