  • wave system curtains

    Does anyone know how to stop wave system curtains from 'splaying' at the hem? I have been asked to alter some existing wave curtains, and to see if I can find out how to ensure the folds stay in place at the hem. Any suggestions welcomed. Thanks

    It depends on the type of fabric the curtains are made from. If they are a thick springy type of fabric you may not be able to do very much.
    A pair of tiebacks my help to control the vertical folds of fabric .but may spoil the look of the wave
    You could try banding the curtains for 3 or 4 days but if its a spring fabric eventually the hemline will splay out again.
    If you have a double hem that can also add bulk at the hemline a single hem may improve the situation also.

      Thanks Penny, I think there is a double hem! I'll look into trying to reduce the bulk there and banding them as well. Thanks for your advice. Karen
