Amy from Joyful Daisy shares a tutorial showing how to make a relaxed Roman shade and a London shade. A relaxed Roman shade pleats up on the sides when you pull the string to raise the shade, but has a gentle drape at the middle. A London is similar, though with the pleats set a little bit in from the side to create more of a scalloped bottom when the shade is raised. Go to Joyful Daisy for the how-to.
