Fabric Examples from C&H

After going into C& H fabrics today I took various pictures of upolstery and curtain fabric. These were from various different companies such as Morris and co and Jim Dickens. The prices were very expensive ranging from 24.99 -54.99 a metre, too much for our budget but these fabrics gave me references for baroque styles, colour schemes and patterns. Even though I personally am not designing or constructing the drapes I observed some display drapes in the store looking at the various fringings, fabrics and styles they came in. The picture below shows the consateener pleats that lay down the sides of baroque drapes they seem to be constructed from a quarter circle of fabric then layered over the top to create the disending pleats.
