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]).
I won’t give a line by line analysis but bear these pointers in mind: Her: tell me what you were doing last week apart from gym and reading?
) 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.
For this tutorial, I’ve used the measurements I used to make floor-length curtains for my own window, which is 67” wide x 49” tall, with the curtain rod about 87” off the floor.
However, you can easily adapt these instructions for any size window. I want my curtains to be a little long so I cut my decorative fabric (hereafter referred to as “DF”) 94” x 55”, and cut the liner 92” x 47” (2” less than the DF at the bottom, and 4” less on either side), leaving room for a 7” hem at the bottom of each, and 4-6” for the rod pocket at the top.
