I have never made draperies but I did make my kitchen curtains. I did my kitchen because I have a short window over the sink, a normal size window in the dining area, and french doors that lead to my back porch. In order for me to get them to match I would have had to have something custom made and that can be expensive. It took measuring correctly and ironing each seam I sewed. In my living room, I bought a set of solid and printed shears with an additional beaded curtain on sale at JC Penney's. There is also vertical blinds in that window. The window looks elegant but not too formal.
