I’ll be your best friend if…..

You can help me figure out who makes these roman shades in the images below or where I can find a pattern for them or some poor soul to help me make them.



I spotted them in the latest Serena and Lily catalog and figured that they sold them, but I couldn’t find them on their site.

You are probably now asking yourselves what do you get out of me being your best friend. Well here goes:



1. I’m super funny so you’ll always be laughing.


2. I love horrible TV shows so you’ll have someone to share your dirty little TV secrets with. Come on the Bachelorette starts tonight. You need someone to dish with.

3. Umm I make amazing desserts and can send some your way.Just don’t blame me for the extra pounds sent your way as well!


4. I can help you decorate any room in your house!!!


5. I can always get my hubby to help you with handy man type jobs around the house.


6. I’m a bit snarky. I’ve also been obsessed with the word snarky this week so I’ll probably be saying it none stop.


7. I’m full of useless celebrity facts.


8. Ok I can go and on, but I won’t bore you anymore. I’m just the greatest and super cool so please please please help me with my latest dilemma. Please.

Did you try calling S&L? Sometimes they have things in their catalog that they don't officially list - and they'll sell it to you for...not a bargain

ok I admit it, the Bachelorette/ Bachelor is my secret addiction. I am still upset that Deanna broke Jesse's heart!
The shades are great, any workroom could probably copy them if you send them the pic....

Here you go...

A very quick google search showed these possibilities:
1.http://www.acefastblinds.com/images/horizons/relaxedromanshade.pdf
(in "Jefferson Linen").

2.http://www.calicocorners.com/product/custom+window+treatments/shades/flat+shades/relaxed+roman+shade.do

By the way, you did a great job blogging for Lauren and your gift ideas were FANTASTIC!

I've been planning to make some and the directions that seem to be the simplest to me are the ones that include Roman Shade Tube Tape... like this http://www.wrights.com/wrights/class/homedec/romanshade/romanshade.htmBut the scallopped border is way beyond my sewing skills.

I'm of no help...but I think we'd be great friends IRL. I too hole useless celeb knowledge and adore the word "snarky"! : )

Just find a drapery workroom (and make sure they don't fire you like my workroom fired me this week--just for demanding that they treat me like a customer) in your area and show them this picture! Or am I missing something here? Hmmm. . . I probably am because this advice seemed too easy. Darn, aren't I already your best friend anyways :)

Hi Ladies,

Thanks for all the help and advice and don't worry I already consider you all BFFs so if you want brownies sent your way just email your address. I swear I'll send some!!!!

I'm going to go to a workroom and see how much they would be to make. I was searching for a pattern in the hopes that my MIL could help me make them and that would probably save me some pennies, but a workroom might not be too bad.

love these, I wish I knew so I could be your BFF.

Let us know if you get them made so we can all copy you!

I think you could so easily have these made.
I will search around...I have a friend who made shades- for her "made-in-the-shade" home.

I would be your bestest without the list, although after reading that we were definitely meant to be friends! What can I say, I love bad TV, good desserts and the word snarky!

Camilla - did you ever find these shades???

I think the best bet for you is just to make the edge into those lovely shapes. Or make them like Austrian balloon shades on the bottom edge. Whatever you prefer.
