Gather your fabric: You will need fabric for the body(main part) Header and contrasting trim piece.
- Body piece-23"x45"
A word about the trim piece. You can not use a trim piece and add rick rack to the seam as a top stich finish. You can add wide rick rack in the seam and let the little points stick out. Also you could add lace or eyelet. so there are lots of different looks you can get. I will use a trim piece in mine.
Not all 45" fabric is 45" wide some can be as short as 42" so be sure to measure and trim any long pieces.
