    Stripes woven incorrectly - can't be straighten by pulling on grain

    I used this fabric for draperies several years ago, positioning the stripes vertically. I just finished 8 panels of drapes with grommets with the stripes horizontally placed. When I hung them to check for hemming, I found the stripes on every panel are 2 inches off, measuring the stripes from the floor. Each panel was cut on pulled thread lines. The header for the grommets is pressed and sewn on thread lines. There is no solution I can think of except to get the solid matching fabric, cut off the bottom 18 inches, sew the solid on, and hem them measuring from the floor. The two-inch off incorrectly woven stripes which slant down will not show as much with more fabric at the bottom. This is one of the biggest disappointments I have had in 50 years of sewing..

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We measured and did find that some stripes do vary by about 1/16" from one side to the next. The longer the drapes, the more the discrepancy may be visible overall. I'm glad to hear that the stripes worked well for you vertically and we will pass that on to our other customers. -Tanya
