I know it’s sometimes hard, (it is for me anyway) to buy the nice upholstery weight fabric when just yards away (heehee! – sorry, I’m a bit punchy tonight) is sitting a perfectly “alright” fabric for half the price or less.But this curtain is going to make a huge impact on your room.
They sell “black out” liner, good especially in bedrooms where you want to block out the maximum amount of light.
I just bought the regular stuff; perfect for my purposes.
Also, please read through the instructions before you start – you may find something I did that you would rather do differently and need to adjust accordingly. _UPDATE: A handy rule of thumb here – figure out how long you want your finished curtain to be, then add the extra inches you need for your rod pocket at the top and your hem at the bottom (in this case, my “formula” for the DF looked like this: fabric length = finished length 4”[rod] 7”[hem]).
Then you can figure out the measurements for the liner fabric based on that. With the wrong side facing you and the edge of the fabric intended for the lower edge of the drape pointed toward you, fold the bottom edge up 2” and press, then 5” more and press. Now you are going to do something called a “blind hem”.
It just makes my sewing machine so happy.) If all this nonsense about blind hems just makes your head hurt, just do a regular hem – follow step 1 as directed, and then just go ahead and sew a straight seam across. Make sure you match up the edges of the fabric from the top down. I like lots (okay, 2”) of extra DF at the bottom (I think I saw a hanging curtain like that once – I don’t know if there’s a reason for the extra fabric), but if you prefer less, you can plan accordingly (cut more liner, or hem it up less). This is where the extra 2” in the cutting guide image above comes in handy.
I do encourage you to try, though – it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, and it gave me a great sense of accomplishment. You will end up with extra DF at the bottom and center.
) is a helpful tool to give you an idea of what it is and how to do it: (note: The video says to do this hem you need to get a special blind hem foot for your sewing machine.
In actuality, you don’t really need a special foot to do this hem, but I imagine it would be helpful.
