  • Curtain Fullness

    Morning All,

    I'm having one of those blank moments!

    I have a track that is 250 wide I have been allowed 4 widths of fabric (2 per curtain), however it is one of Prestigious' embroidered fabric so you have to join it slightly narrower than normal. When joined it leaves me with a flat width of 243 cm. Which = just x 2 fullness. The client does not want the curtains covering the window just skimming the edge of the recess as light is an issue in this room. I did suggest triple pleats but feel that there isn't enough fabric to do this, however they are going under a pelmet so it doesn't really matter what heading goes on them. Double / Cartidge are an option. Do you think I ought to have 2.5 widths per curtain or do you think 2 per curtain will be ok?

    Thanks for your help in advance.
    Kindest Regards,
    Karen

    I would consider double pleats - in the past I have made double pleats to pattern successfully with the pleat sections being 3/4 of the size of the spaces, i.e. less than double fullness. (Double fullness has the pleats and spaces the same size). This was on a pole and the finished curtains looked lovely.

    With your measurements you would only be slightly less than double fullness......

        Personally I would do a cartridge pleat if you're having a pelmet - I see ne point making pleats you're not going to see.
