I almost did not order these as my windows are only 4.5 feet tall and the valances hang down 21 inches which does not work. However, a few minutes with scissors and a sewing machine gave me cute valances that fit my windows nicely. I folded back the tabs and used the fold to run the rod through. This left a green band with decorative buttons along the top. I shortened the bottom portion of the valances by 8 inches. Now they look great on my windows. I used a bit of the trimmings to make appliques on the small pillows that came with the matching quilt. I kept a portion of the trimmings in my mending box to use for repairs on the quilt should the need arise.
Very pretty but they are longer than most valances. Need to be hemmed to make them look right. But still worth the trouble if you have a sewing machine.
These valances look great but they do take some work after washing to get them into shape for hanging. Ironing was necessary and the cording at the bottom of the valance made that a little more difficult. I've had them up for awhile now and they look great for the price!
We are using this valance in our kitchen window and it matches the curtains we purchased previously which are in our living room. Excellent quality and beautiful soft color. After washing and ironing them, they look perfect.
