This allows you to use contrasting fabrics, if you like. The seam that joins them will not show. The swag widths extend 32 to 54. The swag depth is 24. When more than one swag is used, side by side, use the center tail to fill the gap in between. The tail is 17 deep in the middle.The jabot has a different tail, that is made and attached separately. It is 18 1/2 at the deepest point. The jabot hangs about 48 deep. It is cut on a curve and cannot be altered. It is 5 wide across the board line. The front edge folds under and tucks into one of the folds.
