Roman Shade--Custom, Flat from Sewlovelybykelly

This listing is just an example and all roman shades should be purchased through a custom listing only. The listing example does not include fabric or lining and It is just the cost for labor for roman shades. We normally provide lining fabric. We're able to supply fabric, as well, but most customers prefer to send us their own fabric.
Beautify your space with a custom roman shade! We're passionate about making these gorgeous handcrafted custom window treatments! Since 2014, we've been creating thousands of custom home decor products. We make products in any size with the buyer's provided fabric, so the buyer is not limited to fabric choices.

About Sew Lovely By Kelly Custom Roman Shades

* Most of our roman shades are classic/flat style shades but we also do relaxed roman shades. For classic roman shades, when they are all the way down, the fabric will be flat over your window. When they are lifted up, the pleats form. When the shade is
pulled all the way up, it will usually be from an 8-12 inch drop (top pleat) from top mounting position. For corded shades, the folds are 7 inches apart throughout shade. Bottom pleat is 9 inches. If your shade is very small, there will be less pleats, possibly only 3 if a very short window. For cordless shades, the folds will be smaller, about 4" long.

* I can also do relaxed roman shades. Pleats will hang looser for relaxed shades and you may need to manually dress the shade when you pull it up and down so that the pleats form nicely. The bottom is not curved but just a less defined pleat. Relaxed shades do not have dowels inside.

* My Roman Shades can be made with blackout or regular liner. All shades need a liner. I can provide interlining if requested.
Liner protects the shade from sun damage and also secures the dowels inside. My lining fabric is white. For better blackout coverage, we recommend outside mounted roman shades.

* My classic shades come with wooden dowels inside to allow for neater, professional looking pleats. If your fabric is on the thinner side, the dowels may show through a bit when the sun shines if doing regular liner. Blackout liner will not show them at all.

* For our corded roman shades, 3 cords run through pockets up the back
of the roman shade and off to one back side of the shade for pulling it up and down to adjust it. You may wish to tie off cords up high from children and pets. If you'd like a pull that is breakaway/child proof, please let me know. Otherwise the shades come with the white wooden pull.

* If ordering roman shades with ladder tape, your roman shade will be more childproofed than our standard shades. The ladder tape contains the cords on the back so that they cannot be easily pulled outward to form a loop. Ladder tape roman shades also will come with the breakaway knob. Ladder tape roman shades are $25 more for labor per shade.

* I can add ribbon trim to the shade, as well, for an extra cost. You may send your own, or I can provide standard grosgrain colors. I have a chart on I also have a fancier grosgrain that is 2" wide and costs $15/yards. Otherwise, most of my stock basic ribbons are included in the labor price.

* If you have a shade over 46" wide, the pleats might be a litte less defined. Thinner plastic dowels are used for wider shades (shades over 52" wide). The wider shades will have seams down each side since the fabric needs to be sewn together to make the width. The pattern will be matched up so the seam is less visible.

* I supply white canvas fabric and some white linen blends/flax. Most of the ribbon roman shades pictured are using Sew Lovely fabric. I have more fabric for sale at I prefer customers send me their own fabric or select from one of my options, rather than me try to source it. You may send me your fabric directly after ordering your shades, to save money on shipping from the fabric vendor.

* I don't recommend using light weight fabric or light linen. The pleats won't look as defined. If you're ok with this look then I can work with the fabric but it's not ideal. I have a list of fabric that I discourage using on

* The shades all come with a cord lock mechanism to pull shade up and down! When the roman shade is in the down position, there are no folds, as it is a flat roman shade. Folds are created when the shade is pulled up. Each string controls a different part of the shade (sides and middle). When you pull on all 3 cords to lift up you may need to adjust the shade to make it more even by pulling on the individual cords.

* I press my shades before I send them out,but you may also need to press them before hanging, as they do get wrinkled in transit. They look much prettier when ironed prior to hanging.

* I also make custom curtains and pillows.

* I don't make roman shades over 72" WIDE, but for the length I'm able to make any length needed. If your window is wider than 72" across, we recommend breaking it up into 2 or 3 shades, as the wide roman shades don't pleat as nicely or pull up as easily.

* The face fabric wraps around to the back side about 1 inch in, bordering the shade liner in the back.

* There are no blackout pinholes in the middle or our roman shades like many other shades on the market but we do have seams down the sides which can allow slight light to escape.

* If doing a cordless mount roman shade, the shade projection is about 2-3" so more light will escape the sides than our corded roman shades.

* We try to provide as much information as we can about measuring accurately on our website but if you are unsure we recommend hiring a professional to measure. Sew Lovely cannot be held responsible for measuring.

* All shades come with mounting screws and installation instructions can be found on our website. Our roman shades do not need mounts or brackets normally to mount.


Please view my website for more info. Shades will be made with the exact measurements you give me so please carefully read how to measure accurately. I will not add or subtract anything from the size you provide.



Installed inside the window casing. This is a clean look and is nice if you have nice moldings and trim to be exposed. If you'd like the shade to mount INSIDE your window, please provide me the exact measurement of the window, length and width (not the glass but the actual window casing against and around the glass. The shade will fit snug inside the window frame. You may wish to make the shade slightly smaller than the opening.


Installed outside the window casing, directly on the wall or molding, providing a little more coverage and privacy. French doors are normally outside mounted. If you'd like the shade to mount on top of your window, on the window frame itself or above the frame, please measure across the exact width you will need the shade to be to cover the window completely from the position you plan to mount the shade. The finished shade needs to be larger than the window casing. Also, provide the length you'd need to be covered. Mounting the shade above the frame on the wall or on the frame itself will require more fabric since more area is covered. So please measure accordingly to assure the window is covered.

Please send appropriate roman shade fabric. I prefer customers send me their own fabric, rather than me choose it, just to be certain it's exactly what the customer wants (this includes solid white shade fabric)

Please go to the following link for more important information:

Please check out for a list of fabric stores and brands that we like.

Please do not send me fabric with a "signature required" delivery option, as I am not home to sign for packages.

All shades come with hardware. Brackets are no longer needed, as you can easily drill directly into the wood with the provided long screws. It allows for a cleaner look than using brackets.

*** Sew Lovely does not deduct anything from the exact measurement that you provide for the quote. The finished product will be the size that you give.***

*** If doing an outside mounted blackout shade, you may see some light shine through from the side view because the shade will be 1" from the frame/wall. For ultimate blackout, you may wish to do an inside mount. When measured accurately, inside mounted blackout shades provide excellent blackout***Back side of roman shades have thin white pockets going across to conceal the dowels. I can make a shade double sided with the face fabric on the backside also. I can make without the white pockets and use rings instead if you'd prefer******For better blackout coverage (if using blackout liner) you may wish to do an inside mounted shade. Sometimes outside mounted blackout shades will allow just a bit of light to peak through when looking at the shade from the side point of view, because the shade depth is 1". You will still get excellent blackout coverage not as good as an inside mounted shade.

*** Top board of roman shade is 2" deep for inside mounted shades and 1" deep for outside mounted shades

If purchasing this listing please plan to send your own fabric AND liner. You may add ribbon trim to each shade by purchasing the ribbon trim add on listing below (listing is good for ONE shade. For multiple, add the ribbon listing for as many shades as you need.




Sew Lovely would NEVER put a staple on the front of your roman shade. There are 2 staples on the very top of the wood (not the front of the shade) as a extra precautionary measure to help the shade fabric not ever sag. It's not really needed but just an extra thing we do. If ever a shade is taken out of the box and a staple is seen, not to worry! It is NOT the front of the shade. Be sure to hold the shade correctly when installing, with the cord lock downward, and you'll not see any staples. There are times a customer doesn't realize that at first and thinks the staple is seen from the front view. Be reassured that we would never put a staple where it will be seen from the front view :)



SHIPPING FEE UPDATE! USPS recently raised pricing for shipping so depending on your location and the size/weight of your items, free shipping may not be available and you may need to purchase our $28, $35 or $45 and up "shipping fee" listings, since we are unable to weight your shades prior to making them. This will be included in your quote if you email us for a custom listing, before purchasing the listing. If you purchase the generic listings (non-custom) we will email you right away if anything additional will need to be invoiced for the shipping fees. Thank you!

As of 8/19, we've made a major improvement to our shades! No more tack stitches down the middle of our shades, which means no threads down the middle (looks much nicer), no pin holes of light down middle and better for blackout shades!

Minimal pin holes of light shining through. No rings sewn through to face fabric.

I was hesitant to make this purchase through Etsy but relied on the reviews. Kelly has a high rating for a reason. The quality of the Roman shades is excellent. I used Kelly’s fabric which is lovely. They function with ease going up and down just fine. They were packed nicely and arrived in good shape. I had a handyman install and it took a couple minutes per window. It was very easy and Kelly’s video tutorial was helpful. I’d recommend you order with Kelly if you need custom window coverings!

Well worth the wait! This is definitely the small business you want to support. I had fallen in love with this particular design months ago and couldn't find anyone local to make them for me. Problem solved and now my little one's room is complete! I love that they are from a small business and were custom fit to our window. We didn't have the heart to drill the screws through the fabric to install them so we made a different rig where we can take them in and out as needed. Thank you again for such a beautiful design and working with me, very much appreciated and I would highly recommend!

You get exactly what you ask for with Kelly - the shades I had pictured in my mind were 100% what showed up at the door! Delivery time is a little longer than I'd hoped for due to how busy she is, but with a little practicing of patience I was THRILLED with the result!! <3
