    Hand pleated headings, on pole, but pole not to be seen

    Hi all. I'm getting in quite a pickle about this and really need some advice. The client wants hand pleated headed curtains. 50mm pole already in place, but they do not want to see the pole. They also do not want tape heading. Is it possible to make deep double or triple pleats and having the hooks attached to the rings low down in the pleats? I realise it will tip the pleat forward above. Also how to deal with side returns if the top section ends up at an angle? Any advice gratefully received as I am supposed to have them made by the weekend!

    As long as the client is clear the top of the curtain will tip forward to some degree then you can do this, they also need to know the stackback will be slightly larger as the spaces between the pleats will have to fold forwards.

    Depending on the pole/finials etc. you may need to cut away the top of the return so that it fits underneath, charge extra for the additional work if you can (may be too late if you've already had a firm price accepted)

    Thanks Louise. Eventually we have come to a compromise and they will have tape heading with a frill above to cover the pole.

    Seems a shame to have a 50mm pole and then cover it up!

    Glad you have reached a solution that works for everyone.

    Best wishes
