Thank you for your detail note. I got all my fabric and material a few weeks ago and have been a bit timid about starting the project. I will give it a go come this weekend.

Nice job --- the tip about making the lining narrower than the front fabric is a good one, thanks.

Thanks all. Diana, the pulley mechanism must be threaded from the right direction---the inner side--in order for it to pull and catch correctly. The inner side is slanted, the outer is straight. You need to keep it pulled up for several weeks to set the pleats and then it will draw up evenly every time.

Looks great, Mina. Shades are next on my list.

Great solution! I love that when it's open, it really is out of your way and when it's down, it looks great.

Is there a secret to the direction you thread the pull cord to make it roll up right? Very nice project, and I can see where it could come in handy lots of places.
