1. Select type of curtain and measure.
A – Valence
B – Window sill-length curtain
C – Floor-length curtain
2. Decide how you want to hang your curtain.
Clips or hooksAmount of extra fabric needed for hemming: 10".
Rod pocketAmount of extra fabric needed for hemming: 12".
3. How much fabric do you need per curtain?
Curtain length measured from the top of the curtain rod to the bottom of the curtain +10"/12" for hemming = what you should order. Round your measurement up to the nearest yard.
For example: 95" long rod-pocket curtain - buy no less than 3 yards of fabric per curtain panel (95" + 12")
It is important to take into consideration the repeat of a pattern when calculating yardage for curtains, especially if you would like the pattern to line up on each curtain panel.
If there is a repeat of 24.4", divide the total length of the curtain by the repeat length and round up. Multiply the number of repeats by the length of the repeat for total length.
For example: 95" long rod pocket curtain - 3.4 yards of fabric is needed for each curtain panel, 5 repeats.
(95" + 12"= 107"; 107" ÷ 24.2" = 4.3 repeats)
Please note: The width of our fabric is 54"-56"and fabric is sold in increments of 1 yard or 1 repeat online. Please contact a store for purchases of less than 1 yard.
