CURTAIN MAKING AND ALTERATIONS

 Scroll down for photos

Note maximum sizes apply

I can make curtains to fit tracks/poles up to about 2.8 metres

(or 2 widths in each curtain) x 2.5 metres drop.

I just don't have room to make anything larger, sorry.

See measuring guide in 1st picture below.

Amount of Fabric Required

 

The width varies according to the heading style, usually about

1.5 - 2 x the track length for pencil pleat tape or eyelets.

2.25 x track length for triple pinch pleat

 

The cut length needed is the drop  + 23 cms

If the fabric has a pattern that needs matching I need to know the length of the pattern repeat.

Shop assistants do not always correctly work out the amount you really need, so call me first.

 

 

A Word About Fabric

 

Please choose your fabric carefully as this will affect the hang and look of your curtains.

As a rule try not to use anything with any stretch in the weave, however slight

Natural soft linens and cottons can be bad for this.

Firm woven cottons are best.

 

If in doubt, send me a sample or direct me to the fabric website link.
