What Houzz contributors are saying:
Window treatments. Cotton blends easily with other fibers, making it a great choice for window treatments. A combination of cotton and polyester makes for a strong, durable fabric that resists wrinkles and has good color retention.More: 8 Modern Uses for Classically Beautiful Linen
A tall window furnished from top to tail requires a lot of fabric — and the same applies to the lining. Lightweight fabric that's twice the width of the window, lined with bumph and 1-pass lining, will achieve the look you want. One-pass lining is a polyester cotton base cloth sprayed with one layer of acrylic to make a membrane; it's usually available in white, ivory and colors. Forgoing the bumph may achieve an even flatter look, but I would hesitate if the window treatment is for a bedroom.
