Curtains. Wednesday , October 11th , 2017 - 07:03:17 AM
The richer class of women preferred silk, velvet and linen traditional curtains. A lot of thought and craftsmanship used to go into hanging the blinds in the most elaborate way. Blinds with pencil points and French pleats, with sashes to tie them, were considered to be the height of fashion in traditional curtains. Lace and embroidered edging was added to make traditional curtains look more unique. Some traditional curtains were lined to protect them from fading from sunlight.
Once you have decided the curtain pattern, mark the point from where you will start cutting. Use a light marker to make it easier for adjustments. The type of window will determine how you design your curtains. For French doors or windows the curtain opens in the middle therefore, you need two pieces of fabric. While cutting, leave a space of one inch or two along the edges for the hems. For ordinary windows and doors, the fabric should be one piece only.
The top side of the curtain can have hooks or a continuous loop depending on the curtain rod you have. To make the loop, fold the top part of the curtain backwards and then sew it. Make sure the rod fits in well into the loop before stitching it. For a curtain with hooks, there are two options to choose from. You can have hooks made from the curtain cloth using buttons or you can opt for ready-made steel or plastic hooks that are readily available in the market.
