Roman shades are beautiful and functional. But there has been little written about the details of their construction. This app includes an ebook setting forth some standards for fit and finish that should be of considerable help to amateurs and to professionals alike.
Also included is a calculator that not only gives an accurate indication of yardage needed but also provides a blueprint to guide construction. There has never been an easier or more accurate way to estimate job needs. The calculator even accommodates pattern matching!
Supplies can be ordered or information sought without leaving this App. Given a device with an internet connection, the app provides for direct access to the Sailrite Web Site. Search for fabrics, research alternatives, ask questions of the Sailrite staff and ORDER what you need. Wholesale pricing is available on request to qualified professionals.
Finally the app provides access to web videos on roman shade construction that clearly demonstrate techniques.
Corrected errors in renditions for shades so narrow that two or more can be cut from one cloth width. Now includes better pattern matching logic with these smaller shades.
Clarified and improved the organization of material in the "Measurements and Rules" chapter of the eBook.
Ratings and Reviews
This app has such potential, but since there is no way to print the fabric calculations and supplies list, I have to keep going back and forth between the instructions and the calculations.
I was also disappointed to realize that there is no video or even drawings that explain how to accordion fold a tucked Roman shade.
Also no instruction for an outside mount.
I'm so bummed I spent $5 on this app. The calculation part of this app freezes and the information in this app you can be found online.
