  • time it takes to make a pair of curtains

    How long does it take people to make a pair of two width, interlined, pinch pleat curtains, drop approx 86". When doing the hem do people still stitch through to the face cloth or just catch the interning. Thank you

      I've just made a pair of pencil pleat tape headed, lined curtains 5 widths in total and 220cms long and from cutting out to packing the finished curtains it took just under 13 hours. Pinch pleats take quite a bit longer because of all the calculating involved (which always gives me a headache!) as well as the stitching of the pleats.

      I'm not sure that you can really compare your speed with anyone else's because of all the variables involved. As long as you are happy with the quality of the work you are doing and the amount you are getting paid for it, it doesn't matter.

      Best wishes

          Approximately 15 hours will have to spend to make a pair of the curtain.
