For the first time, best-selling author Caroline Wrey shows how to make her elegant curtains using full-colour step-by-step photography. You can actually see what she is doing and how she uses tried and tested methods to ensure a professional result every time. Whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced stitcher, the instructions given tell you everything you need to know about curtain making, from the type of fabric to the best window to hang it from.

In addition, each section has a variety of inspirational, real-world photographs giving a wealth of ideas on how to choose the right treatment for your particular type of home.
