Photo Silk Draperies, deluxe fullness interlined
Deluxe fullness means that there will be more folds in your drapery. It may or may not cover more wall or glass. We recommend deluxe fullness whenever a tieback is used to create a swooshing effect and to achieve the rich folds shown here. This is the traditional European look that is typically meant by the term "elegant" draperies.

Interlining benefits silk greatly as you can see in the photo here in that it supports the silk, preventing it from collapsing with its own weight into puckers. Some designers like interlining in all draperies. We would like to point out that interlining bulks up top as well as the body of the drape. In some cases, the bulk in pleats or detailing detracts from the styling. For instance, thick linen will pleat and drape nicely without interlining. The pleats will be crisp and tailored. Only very thin linen will pucker when draping to the floor. When a breezy look is desired, we may want to make the draperies unlined and consider each hem carefully (possibly using a French seam in places).

Standard fullness (single width) drapery panels may be tied back creating a Colonial or modern effect.
