After the advent of the textile industry and weaving of fabrics, curtains became more common as more people could afford to buy curtains. To add to the beauty of curtains, different ways of hanging curtains were introduced. Curtains became much more elaborate and a number of new fabrics were introduced as curtain cloth. Curtains with floral designs were preferred in traditional curtain designs as they added some design and broke the monotony of plain walls. The different curtain hanging designs that were introduced in traditional curtains were again introduced to break the monotony of the curtains and to make the curtains look elegant and elaborate.
Some curtains require some lining at the back to make them thick. In this case, cut the lining material of the same length as the curtain fabric. Pin the two fabrics with their plain sides facing each other. Sew the two materials together at the border with a sewing machine. Fold the edges at least half an inch inwards along three sides and then hem sew it using the sewing machine. Only one of the shorter sides should be left unstitched. However if you want to add drapery weights on the bottom side of the curtain you should leave it unstitched too.
Once you have determined what length of curtains you would like you need to then measure the length with a tape measure curtains are usually manufactured or made in pairs but the measurements you see on ready made curtains on the packaging is individual curtain measurements rather than both of them together generally the total width of both curtains should be 2 to 2 times the width of the curtain pole or the track. This is only a rough guide and if you have any other questions please get in touch with us here at curtains online.
