We started thinking about this one 4 years ago. The fabric is perfect for the room and the homeowner loves it, but the droopy swag had to go. We wanted something a bit formal, not too fluffy and something I could make from the fabric we had. This is an Empire style valance. The bay measures 80 inches on the sides and 33 in the center section. I have a new way of constructing these huge bay valances so that they are very transportable, no velcro and no corner braces. I’m still working out the kinks but I’ll publish something about it soon.
