    You might find Merrick & Day's Encyclopedia a good reference. Do you have this book? If not you might be able to get it on ebay.

        You should be able to get the book from your library too.

        As a guide Austrian blinds are usually 2x fullness (i.e. 2 x required finished width) and overlong so that there are still some folds at the bottom even when down.
