Hi Itsafineline, many thanks for replying. I think I get it! Will sketch out tomorrow and may come back to you with any further questions. Not sure about hems but assume you do those as normal, been a few months since I did the first blind!
Hi. Interlined romans are sewn almost completely by hand. The interlining is cut to the size of the finished blind, and you need to create hems/seam allowances round it. As you have already made a blind, you know how to calculate the pleat sizes. So: cut interlining to size of finished blind. cut fabric to finished size + 5cm seam allowance each side + hems, say 10cm cut linings to finished size + 3cm each side you need to sit your interlining on your main fabric and turn over the 5cm seam allowance + press. hand stitch it to the interlining if you turn in 5cm each side on your linings, you will see a small amount of face fabric when you stitch your linings on Prepare your linings, with the seam allowance and the pockets for your rods place it on the interlined piece pin + tack at the rod points handstitch the lining to the main fabric machine the lining to the main fabric at the rod seams is this making sense?
