Reader Request: Ikat Fabric for Drapes

Thursday, January 28, 2010

LGN reader Meghan is decorating her toddler son's room and has fallen in love with these ikat drapes available at Horchow for $250 a panel. Yipes!

She would love help finding the same panels for a (much) lower price, or some similar fabric with which to make her own curtains. Meghan's especially fond of the green in the fabric, which coordinates with a vintage green dresser she recently purchased for the nursery.

I think Robert Allen's Khandar has a similar feel/color scheme and I actually like this pattern more than the Horchow drapes. Available here and here.

Here's a different colorway. This one is an outdoor print, which would still work fine as drapery.

Let's help Meghan! Do you recognize this pattern?

And, on a related note, check out Janell's incredibly thorough series on sewing drapes. Her finished panels (also an ikat pattern!) look so professional. A must read if you're considering tackling your own curtain project!
