I also do alterations here at Jones Soft Furnishings. Over the summer I added some blackout linings to some ready-made curtains.
I also did a complete remake of an old pair of curtains. They had been hung in a cold damp room of the customers previous house. When they moved she didn’t want to throw them away as she loved the fabric, which was Osbourne & Little, so they were put in a cupboard and left. On decorating her front room some years later she decided to re-cycle the old curtains and build the new decor around them.
The old linings and interlining were stripped off and replaced with new, along with new headings. They now have a new lease of life and look fabulous with the new scheme of the room.
