Restoration Hardware Dupe Drapes

Thursday, August 6, 2020

We have a Restoration Hardware Outlet about an hour away.  But even at outlet prices, it's still a bit pricey for me.  But there is something about their monotone, neutral, luxurious style that I love. Looking thru their catalog, I've always loved their yummy oatmeal-colored linen drapes.  So I decided to make my own!

I sewed some for my family room a couple of years ago using linen I found at FabricStore.com.  No affiliate links to them, but I still linked to the fabric, because it was so reasonably priced compared to every other linen I found.  Below is the actual fabric that I chose.  It says heavy, but I would still consider it a lightweight linen.  If you're looking for fabric, you could always request a sample for $1.50.  The ones they send are suuuper tiny, but it will give you an idea of the feel and color.  Maybe I will do a 'linen tasting' in the future and collect several samples and compare for weight, color, texture, and of course price!

I especially wanted to share these drapes that I made, because I am starting on a new set of drapes with this beautiful blue+white striped fabric I already have on hand.   (Psst!  I just found an old post and turns our I purchased it in 2013!  So seven years ago, but I still love it!)  It has no manufacturer markings, so I don't know who it's by or even it's fiber makeup.  But it feels like a cotton/linen.
The method I used is the simplest I've ever done for lined drapes, so I thought that was worth sharing in case you were interested in completing your own!  Follow along on Instagram for now, but once they're complete, I will write up a post for how I created them!
