Curtain Making Prices:
Full Quotation and Price Breakdown Available on Request.
We 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.
Making up cost for standard Pencil Pleat, lined curtains with hand sewn hems and sides is £35 per width or part width of fabric used, up to a finished length of 150 cm. £45 per width or part width of fabric used for finished lengths over 150 cm. Plus the cost of your fabric, linings and heading tapes.
Alterations (clean curtains welcome) – price on request
Amount of Fabric Required:
The width varies according to the heading style. It is usually about 1.5 – 2 times the track length for pencil pleat tape and 2.25 times track length for pinch pleat.
The cut length needed is the drop + 25 cm.
If the fabric has a pattern that needs matching I need to know the length of the pattern repeat. If in doubt, send me a sample or direct me to the fabric website link.
Measuring for Curtains.
Firstly, measure your track or pole width. To get a soft gathered look when your curtains are closed, use your pole or track measurements as a starting point and multiply it by x 2.
Measuring curtain length
- Decide where your curtains will end:
- Sill Length. End 1.25 cm (1/2″) above the windowsill
- Below sill. End 15 cm (6″) below the windowsill
- Floor length. End 1.25 cm (1/2″) above the floor.
Radiator below your window? Curtains should end 3 cm above the radiator to allow the heat to circulate into the room rather than raising up behind the curtains.
I will need the hook drop, and any heading required above the hook. Also, track/pole length.
Things to remember:
Measure at multiple points. Windowsills and floors are not always level, so measure at 2 or 3 points and use the smallest measurement to ensure the best fit.
Header tape. Our pencil pleat curtains come with a 3″ header tape. This allows some flexibility if your want to give the appearance of more length. 6″deep header tape is also available and recommended for full length curtains.
