Coco Chanel, one of my style icons, perhaps said it best: This is the Pet Shop. An advertisement for the event on a screen at Piccadilly Circus; London. Did you know that Herbert planted ALL these trees? Those were my initial thoughts upon entering the next section of the Blackout Haunted House.
I have said that black has it all. It is the perfect harmony. Indeed, many New Yorkers are known to have embraced this color or absence of color I spend enough time with my husband in his office to have myself embraced the all black look. It is not hard to Black is elegant and chic; black is slimming; black looks good on all skin tones; black looks good with all hair colors; black looks as good on men as it does on women.
The dress code makes clothes buying and getting dressed in the morning easier. Black, however, can also be one-dimensional and boring, and while it may seem easy to dress in all black, there are a few rules to keep in mind, which fashion maven and BFF Kassie Rempel of Kassie's Closet reminded me of.

Chelsea, I love your tutorials and your pictures are very helpful. You have excellent taste in fabrics. I make my own curtains but have never made lined ones. Keep up the great work! I too have one of those awesome moms who will come visit and help sew! Thanks so much for the clear tutorial!
My windows are 2. Curtains look great in all rooms. If you know, would you mind sharing? When sewing the bottom of the tabs under half an inch, along with the fabric, did you sew along the seem all the way through all fabrics so that the hem is showing on the front of the panel? I assume there has to be a step that sews all pieces together for strength and proper hanging and this seems to be the only one that will work.
I just made these yesterday for my Bubs room after the material has sat folded in his room for 3 months!! Thanks for a great tutorial. Have a great day! How did you know that I needed this exact tutorial Chelsea?! Thank you for sharing how you did it! I love the fabric you chose. Your blackout curtains look great!
I am so excited about this tutorial. The hubby and I desperately need some blackout curtains. Our lives are just so much better with them. Though, I know that I will use this to make some after the move! Also, I appreciate all of the photos and detailed instructions. I get a little lost when it comes to sewing sometimes.
Thanks for sharing at merrymonday! Thanks for sharing at HomeMattersParty! I love your fabric choice, but am looking for a cheaper option. Would a burlap fabric work with this project? Or any suggestions for other fabrics? So, we need these curtains for a half window — does the fabric need to run all the way to the floor in order to black out the light? Or can it just cover the window or possibly go 4 inches or so longer? I do pretty much the same method with 1 exceptions.
I hang the curtains before hemming and drag the iron board over, after pinning the hem. I then use iron on tape for the hem. So I am not taking the curtain down and then up again. Oh, one other exception. Thank you so much for tutorial. How much did you fold over the top? This pattern is fantastic. I have never used this lining. How do you tell which is the right side of the lining fabric?
Thanks for this great tutorial! I live in a small house and have a hard time finding a large surface to lay it out in order to cut. I have a rotary cutter. Love the post and so easy to understand. My question to you is…Do these slide easily when opening. That said; as most widows and rods are standard in sizing purchase one that ….. By doing so this will a eliminate the need to telescopic it b provide what is called stack-back allowance when the drapes are open you will have more window pane showing c make the width of the window appear larger in width which in turn will give the window a balanced appearance if hanging your drapes high as Chelsea did d will help to eliminate light filtering through at the sides when using a decorative rod.
If using a traverse rod and a drape with hooks they are often designed so the side hem s of each panel can be wrapped around to meet the wall.
I have been following this tutorial and just finished today. I am a novice sewer so I worked extra slow, but after I got the fabric cut it only took about 3 hours to finish all the steps I was doing 2 panels at once. I was confused about the four extra inches when attaching the long edges.
