Made to Measure Curtains

I would like some made to measure paisley curtains...

We have several Paisley designs for curtains. 

Paisley is a vegetal motif, often shaped like a droplet or kidney bean. The Paisley patterned fabric originates from stylised pine cones from Kashmir. From roughly 1800 to 1850, the weavers of the town of Paisley in Renfrewshire, Scotland, became the foremost producers of Paisley shawls.

We love paisley curtain fabric. See my Life and Eternity design and Paisley Ground. They are a pattern framed within a pattern, making them an absolute cornucopia of colour and shape. If you are familiar with paisley, then you must know of its lovely lace-like motif that features an intricate pattern of curved, feather-shaped figures. Paisley fabric designs are timeless and forever popular. If paisley patterns are too “busy” for you, consider mine because my chosen colours of soft shades create a very gentle feel in a room.

We can make beautiful hand sewn paisley curtains for you through our Made to Measure service.

Please ask for fabric samples and see the colours in your rooms. If you order a half metre returnable sample you can drape it over an existing chair or pin it to your present curtains and see how it looks. All our fabrics are printed in the UK on a good weight of 100% Linen and Linen Union making them suitable for large curtains and upholstery. We hold a good stock of all our fabrics ensuring delivery is usually within 3-5 working days with an overnight service available. The same team, who take you order will roll, inspect and cut it, so accuracy and quality can be assured.

How to measure up for your curtains:

A video guide to help to measure up 

Please remember that pattern repeats and fabric widths are automatically calculated if you order through our web site. It is advisable to fit your pole or track before ordering your curtains. Your pole or track should ideally extend 30cms on each side of the window so when drawn back light is maximised and at least 15cms above the top of the window to block out as little light as possible again. Please use metric units only when measuring.

Poles:

WidthIf you have a pole, measure the distance between the finials. (A)

Finished Length for pencil pleat, triple pleat, double pleat and inverted pleat - when measuring the finished length using a curtain pole, we recommend allowing between 2cms and 5cms above the eyelet on the underside of the curtain ring, depending on how much of the pole and rings you wish to hide. From the measurement you choose above the eyelet, measure down to the bottom of the hem (see B & C) and that is your finished length measurement. 

Finished length for cottage pleat (choice of either 5cm or 10cm depth - see below)- these have to be made using a 3cm single position tape, which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, please provide us with the distance from the eyelet to the floor, and depending on your choice of depth, add 5cm or 10cm accordingly.

Finished length for flop over frill - these curtains have to be made with a 3cm single position tape which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor. Don't add any extra for the frill, we will do that.

Please note, we will add 25cm for hem allowance.

                                   

                                           

 

Tracks

Width - If you have a track, measure the total length of the track, including any overlap where the curtains meet in the middle.

Finished length: For pencil pleat, triple pleat, double pleat and inverted pleat - when measuring the finished length of your curtains using a track add 1cm above the track (to hide the track) down to the bottom of the hem. (D)*

Finished length for cottage pleat (choice of either 5cm or 10cm depth - see below)- these have to be made using a 3cm single position tape, which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, please provide us with the distance from the eyelet to the floor, and depending on your choice of depth, add 5cm or 10cm accordingly.

Finished length for flop over frill curtains - these have to made with a one inch single position tape which makes the finished length non-adjustable. To get your finished length measurement, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor and don't add any extra for the frill as we will do this. 

Please note, we will add 30cms for hem allowance.
