    Very nice Mairi! very good pattern match. May I ask did you use a heading tape? I've not done any of those headings myself.

      Hi Mairi

      On the first picture are the folds stitched in place or does each one have 2 pin hooks on each ring to create the fold?

        Hello Mairi,

        Stunning work! I think it's two pin hooks per ring.......am I right? It doesn't look like you've spoiled them with stitches. Just beautiful.

          There is no heading tape, only buckram and no stiches...the buckram is held in place by the hooks going through it and two hooks in one ring make up the pleat . I think I only used double width to make both those pairs....thanks for the comments

            They look stunning. Is it the same principal as triple pleat without the sitching? Are the pin hooks the same? and does this mean you pin hook the top for the pole ring and the second at bottom of buckram to hold in place. I'm guessing the pin hooks are different as otherwise they would tear the material, can you let me know as I'd love to make a sample one.

              Ursula,

              The pinhooks will be held in the buckram from the back of the curtain, taking care that they don't stick out through the face fabric. You can also by sew on hooks.

              I imagine you put the pinhooks into the fabric, at the correct measurement apart (will be determined by the size of the unstitched pleat you're creating). You will have already decided how high up the curtain heading your hooks need to be to lie neatly under the wood/metal rings that carry your curtains on the pole.

              As you look at the curtains from the face side, put the left hand side hook into the screw eye on the underside of the ring from the left side. Do the same with the right hand side hook from the right side of the screw eye.

              This is only what I think.

                Rosie,

                Thanks - I'm sooooooo dim. Will give them a try (if I ever get a minute).
