Marquee swags and pelmets: there's a knack

Anyone who has a DIY Marquee with our swag upgrade or 9m+ wide linings will know that swags and pelmets are velcroed on once all the other linings are up. The idea is they are there to give a finishing touch to the lining (and they hide all manner of cables and fixings).

If you just velcro the swags up in place without much thought then it will show, these uneven swags for example:

Apologies for the photo quality but you can make out the swags are uneven and not stretched out.

Here’s what they should look like:

You can see they’re straight and evenly spaced out.

The trick is to pull the swags out straight as you go. The swags don’t need to be velcroed to the roof every inch of the way, if the roof is bunched up a little then pull the swag across it before velcroing. Try to bypass any Velcro that rises up a little on the roof if you can, this will keep the swags looking more even.

Thanks for reading.
