Can You Hand Sew Curtains? (RESOLVED)

But. Here’s the thing about window treatments. They can be expensive. And this is one of those decisions you need to weigh with more than just cost in mind – it’s most definitely a balancing act. If you choose a really high-end fabric to have custom drapes made you should be prepared to spend several thousand dollars for a couple windows, but they will be exquisite. If you order cheap ready-made drapes you’re going to get what you paid for – less cost but not great looking window treatments. There are a lot of nice ready-made drapes now that are both good quality and reasonably affordable (West Elm is my favorite source) but there are only so many fabric options 😊 For my family room I wanted to be able to choose a patterned fabric that complemented the rest of the room and since I know how to make curtains myself I knewnown it would be a simple project once I foundad found the right fabric 🙌 I started poking around on Lacefield’s site – I always find something I love there and the quality is absolutely excellent for the price per yard. I’ve used Lacefield fabrics on my dining room chairs, dining room bench, dining room windows, and guest room headboards. [1]
Unless you order custom drapes or happen to be very adept at hanging curtain rods at the precise height you need for your specific curtains, you will likely find yourself in a situation, at some point, when you need to hem a pair of too-long curtains. And you may even tend to put it off and off and off because it seems too hard or you’re worried you’ll get it wrong. I’m not going to lie…of all the crafting skills, measuring is NOT my strong suit, and I’ve hemmed curtains to the wrong length more times than I care to admit. But the method I’m going to share today is not only easy, but will practically guarantee your curtains end up at the right length…the first time!

Now make the miters in the bottom corners of the curtain. These are to make tidy flat corners that do not involve cutting away excess fabric (which would prevent any later alterations). To make a mitre, unfold along the crease lines that you have made for the second hem turning and for the side of the curtain. With the first of the two hem folds left in place, turn press the corner of the curtain at 45 degrees passing through the point at which the edge fold line and the second hem fold line intersect. Your curtain will now appear to have angle corners. Now fold in the edges and the second hem fold. Your curtain will now be square again at the corner, with a neat flat join on the back angled up from the corner where the side turning meets the hem. Press with an iron.
