About this title


Excerpt from Home Draping Simplified: The Ymass Methods of Cutting and Making Draperies

To cut and hang a pretty window drapery is one of the most tedious and trying things milady has ever attempted, if she goes about the matter without knowing how to do it. If the directions and explanations in this book are carefully studied and followed, there will be no difficulty whatever. Moreover, it can be completed in far less time than one would expect.

The Ymass System discloses methods that have been used successfully by the author in the upholstery departments of some of the largest stores of this country and of Europe. It effects considerable savings in time and material.

To thoroughly master the ideas, one need only to read over the directions several times and then, by the aid of the illustrations, make any style desired. Nothing has been left undone to keep the explanations clear and free from superfluous matter that might tend to confuse the novice.

Color Harmonizing

The most popular color schemes are carried out with four dominating shades: blue, rose, gold and gray, or combination with any one of these hues as a base.

Of recent years, black has been much in favor when combined with any of these colors. Its use can scarcely be recommended now, however, except where the hangings are frequently changed.

When the furniture is upholstered in flowered tapestry or striped or brocaded velour, and the floor covering is of similar design, the drape should be made from a plain fabric of the shade that predominates in the furnishings.
