I'm making curtains. I *might* have gotten myself into a pickle.

I need help. Not the pill kind; I already have that covered. My visionary skills, while lacking severely on the spacial front, are usually pretty good with colors n' stuff. But most of my projects don't involve the amount of math and thinking and general importance of this project.

I'm going to have to look at these curtains every day, so my main concern at this point is not messing them up. Later my concern that my two old and decrepit sewing machines might fail me will come into play. For now I'm pretty comfortable with my measurements and basic design - covering an area just larger than the window, the main portion will be vertical grey stripe with a smaller portion of solid green, separated by black grosgrain ribbon. But here's the question: does the green go on top or on bottom?

Please, please sparse friends, what do you think?

I would say on top. Or, depending on how you're attaching the curtain to the rod, make the top and bottom hems exactly the same so you can flip it over if you want. :)

Bottom. Interesting choice! Can't wait to see how it turns out. :)

can i get artsy on you?

I think the solid color on top will look light and airy, and the vertical stripes will look kind of like streamers.

I think the solid color on bottom will look weighty, like it's a green mass hanging from cords.

Love it. I was thinking top, and polls have spoken. Go go gadget sewing machine!
