WHAT IS DRAPERY FULLNESS?

Fullness, simply defined, is the ratio of fabric used to cover a set space. Fullness asks the question, 'if I have 100” of space to cover, do I need 100” of fabric, or 150”, or maybe 200”? What will these changes in the amount of fabric mean for the overall aesthetic? This is the essence of fullness.
