How do you sew curtains?

If you have to join several widths together, always sew them in the same direction - this can be difficult if they are very wide curtains. What I mean is, top to bottom at each seam. If you don't do this they sometimes hang badly. Iron seams as you go along - don't leave it to the end. Then do the side hems - about 10 centimetres. Incidentally, it's always easier to sew checked or striped fabric if it's your first time making curtains. Next sew on the heading tape eg rufflette. How much you need depends on what style of pleats you require and how full you like your curtains. The easiest curtains to make are those that will hang from a pole. A very modern and fuss free style is ungathered curtains at the top that can still be luxuriously full but not voluminous and puffed out. So use ruflette but don't pull up the strings to gather the material. So turn over about 15 centrimetres from the top and pin the ruflette tape . Then tack it. It is always worthwhile tacking before sewing. It's also usually worthwhile lining curtains. The bad news is that I always sew my linings in by hand. If you want to sew them in by machine you can tack them into the bit left under the tape. Another relatively cheap and easy option is doing eyelets at the top but I wouldn't suggest these for a curtain virgin.
