Handmade Lampshade Order Finished

Just finished this lampshade today. It took six hours of cleaning, fitting, sewing, and glueing but it's finally done. This shade fits over a glass globe. I hope to have a picture of it on the lamp to post here soon. It measures 17" across the top, 19" across the bottom, and is 11" high.I used an ivory crepe fabric for the outside and a crepe-backed satin in ivory for the inside. The trim is a gold braid gimp. This lampshade was machine sewn and then handsewn to the top and bottom rings.

I think it turned out nicer than the photo shows. :)
