Ask Jenny T. – How To Prevent Fabric From Fading

Ask Jenny T - How to prevent fabric from fading

I love it when you ask questions! If you have a sewing or DIY related question, send it to me at and I’ll respond through the blog and through video.

Hi Jenny,

Love your website and projects!

I have not been able to find a solution to this problem. I make my own curtains and drapes and usually line them with Roclon blackout lining. However, I find that after a while my fabric does fade from the sun. Of course this is very annoying especially after all that hard work of making the drape and the expense of the fabric. Do you have any suggestions for how to keep fabric curtains and drapes from fading other than buying Sunbrella fabrics?

Thank you!
