  • Wave Curtains

    Hi,
    I am currently making wave lined curtains. I don't want the stitching to show through and I am worried that the heading won't be stiff enough and may not hold the curtain properly. I have made interlined wave curtains and they do look lovely, but I am just concerned that just lined they may drop. I interlock the linings to the main fabric and will stitch the heading tape to the turned over main fabric and lining. I am probably worrying too much as usual, but I was just wondering how others construct the heading. I am using an Evans ds track.

      Thanks Louise, I have looked through all the methods and I am liking this one from Penny below which is how I did my last pair but with the added stab stitch, if you stab stitch on the back wave , it should be more or less invisible when the curtains are hanging.

      "We have done lots of wave tape curtains lately and like you I hate seeing the two rows of machine stitching.
      So in our workroom we machine the top of the tape to the top of the curtain. We then fold the tape over to the back of the curtain so you cannot see the stitching.
      We then hand sew the bottom of the tape to the back of the curtain, taking a stitch thru all the layers at regular intervals. I suppose you would call it a stab stitch just to hold everything together. It works a treat and there are no visible stitching lines."
