For sewers who have mastered the basics, home décor items such as curtains and drapes are some of the easiest things to make, and they are also one of the quickest ways to give any room an instant facelift. Combining clear, accessible tutorials with practical advice on choosing, styling, and sewing fabrics, Upstyle your Windows is a must-have guide for all creative homemakers and design-savvy DIY-ers looking to customize their windows with their own distinctive style.

Emphasizing the notion that anyone can make their own curtains, drapes, or shades, Upstyle your Windows has an fresh, sophisticated aesthetic and features the latest contemporary styles in window treatments, making it a far cry from the dry instructions and dated fashions found in many other books on the subject. Beautifully illustrated tutorials cover a wide range of techniques, arming readers with the skills to tackle their own projects, whether they are looking to make cute café curtains or stylish roman shades.

Packed with yardage charts, measuring tips, and tutorials, Upstyle your Windows also includes a number of engaging case studies that provide a valuable insight into the various challenges faced by other non-professionals, encouraging readers to take the plunge and have a go for themselves. Bursting with inspiration and focusing firmly on core techniques rather than prescriptive projects, Upstyle your Windows is perfectly placed to tap into the huge market of design-savvy creatives represented by blogs and hip brands such as Design*Sponge, Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, and Apartment Therapy.
