# Advice 1: How to find swag

Swag is the most traditional model of soft lambrequin - strip of tissue that covers the ledge. The swags of garlands of Smad gives the appearance solemn, and at the same time elegant look.
You will need
• Mounting plate
• The fabric for the pattern (Voile)
• Paper patterns
• Scissors
• Mel
• Pins
• The main fabric
Instruction
1
The process of creating a pattern svaga begins with the purchase of a working material for the construction of the template. Voile you can make a test model, which will form folds. After that you will be able to transfer the final version to the fabric from which you plan to sew.
2
The basis of the pattern svaga equilateral is an isosceles trapezoid. You need to draw half of a trapezoid. Measure the height of the future Smad. Pelmets on the Windows in the model homes rarely sew with a height of more than 50 and less than 30 cm will Take the approximate height of 45 cm as Smad is a semicircle with a clearly laid pleats, the height we multiply by a factor of folds, which is equal to three. Consequently, 45 cm x 3 = 135 cm Is the height of our trapezoid.
3
The next value is half of the top peracid, or ½ of the upper side of the trapezoid. Look at your window, imagine how much of Smad you need to register it, and approximately what should be the distance between the folds of each Smad. At a height of 45-50 cm Smad, looks the most organic the width of the upper parecida equal to 30 cm so, AB = 30 cm.
4
The next point in the pattern is the depth of the first fold. This value is also taken arbitrarily, it is equal to 5-7 cm Mark on the drawing point A1. Now we need to shift the overall height of Smad to the depth of the first fold. Put the point B1.
5
Then determine the length of the sagging Smad. Take the cord and simulate with it overhang the bottom edge of the Smad. Simply fit the ends of the cord on the bracket. The deepest point of the SAG of the cord must be equal to 45cm. Don't forget you are modeling themselves swag, and do it to suit your taste. Measure the length of cord dangling between the two pins. Divide it in half.
6
Swipe in from the point To the perpendicular. Mark on it a segment equal to half the length of the cord, and you get the point G. Connect the points B1 and G a smooth semi-circular line. You got the drawing 4 main points forming the future pattern: A1, B1, G and B. Connect points B and G in Front of you half a paper pattern.
7
To svag well-draped, cut it on the bias. Fold bought a piece of the veil at an angle of 45 degrees. Pin the pattern, positioning the segment A1B1 by the fold of the fabric. Add 1 – 1.5 cm for seams and take the desired part. Mark on the fabric the middle of the pattern.
8
Make a mark on the bracket. Swipe down perpendicularly a straight line. On this line you will target mid-Smad, in order to avoid distortions.

Fasten the wall mounting plate upper peracid three pins, aligning the middle mark on the bracket. Extreme pin plug, departing at 7-9 cm from the edge of the fabric. Lay the first fold and secure it with pins on both sides. Align the fold with your hands, pay attention to the middle crease was exactly above the vertical line that you have conducted. In the same way as to lay the pleats over the entire length of the shoulder, and fastened them with pins. Approximate depth of each fold – 5-7 cm Try to make the folds equal.
9
Stepping back a few steps, decide which shoulder you have turned out better. Sew with small stitches the folds in it from his grasp. Stepping back from the weld at 2 – 2.5 cm, cut the excess fabric. Remove the template from the mounting Board. Remove the pins and a running stitch. Fold the fabric along the center and cut the second shoulder, so that the pattern was completely symmetrical. Expand the fabric and iron it iron. Before you finished pattern-the pattern of an equilateral Smad. Using it, you will have plenty of Smad as much as you had planned in his model of the pelmet. Now we can calculate how much fabric you will need and go to the store.
As mounting Board you can use an Ironing Board or the back of the chair.

Choose for the manufacture of Smad plain easy draped stick.

# Advice 2 : How to sew swag curtains

Manufacturer Smad – top Drapes to soft lambrequin – not an easy task. However, do not despair and completely abandon this option the window decoration, if you do not have yet the required skills of tailoring this element of the decor. An alternative to the classical swagu can become mechanical. The difference of this option is that creases are formed on it due to the sewn and tied in a special way the curtain tape. It is quite simple to perform, so to cut out and sew it under force even to the beginner sewing.
You will need
• - soft, well-draped curtain fabric;
• - curtain tapes;
• - sewing supplies, sewing machine;
• paper and drawing utensils.
Instruction
1
Make the necessary measurements for the construction of the pattern svaga. Determine how wide (and) it needs to be, what will be its depth (b) distance from the top line to the bottom of the SAG. Measure, based on the data, the length of the lower SAG (c) line bending of the fabric at the bottom.
2
Determine the width of the shoulder Smad (d), dividing its total width (length top) three. The Central third of the upper line – middle of the Smad (e) is not conformable, the straightened portion, and two lateral third of the shoulder Smad, which you will drape with curtain tape.
3
Build the pattern svaga, using the received measurements. Draw two perpendicular lines with a vertex at the point A. to the Right of it put the half of the size of the middle of the Smad and add 3 cm to the processing of AB = (1/2A + 3 cm).
4
Put down cut of as – depth Smad, multiplied by a factor of 2-2. 5, the magnitude of which depends on the density of the fabric (the fabric is denser, the smaller the value).
5
Using the thread length equal to the depth of the Smad (AC), spend part of a circle (arc) from point A. this arc aside from the point With a value equal to half the length of the lower SAG plus 3 cm to the processing of point D.
6
Connect the points D and B. the Angle will zakruglenie. Turned out half of the pattern svaga.
7
To the fold of the fabric, attach the pattern and circle. Make allowances 1.5 cm round. Cut mechanical Smad possible and on the bias, and the common thread.
8
Treat the bottom edge of the Smad double hem or band (fringe, piping, etc.).
9
The allowances of the side and top sections zautyuzhte on the wrong side, then sew them to the curtain ribbons (both the edges).
10
Pull loose braid on the side segments of BD, leaving the middle of the Smad not draped.
