Made to Measure Curtains

The cheerful blooming of daffodils serves as Vanessa's inspiration for this month's top choices. Spring is finally here.

We may once again relish the pleasures of our gardens coming "back to life" with the arrival of spring blossoms and milder weather. This is reflected in Vanessa's design, Song Birds in Buttercup, Clay, and Charcoal. Buttercup is a vibrant yellow colour that can brighten every area in your home. Its mostly vertical form also makes it one of the best options for curtains. Using this design can quickly create a focal point in your area and entirely transform it with colour alone, as you can see in our image below. You can utilize the extra colours of Clay and Charcoal greys for your curtains as leading edges, contrast headers, or for a bug impact, reverse lining where it can be seen from outside.

Elegant and stately, the Stockholm Stripe in Dove, Saffron, and Winter is ideal for curtains and a great match for many of Vanessa's collections' more intricate designs. The design's precisely vertical, straight stripes provide a formal pair of curtains that go well with a modern or contemporary environment. As previously noted, Saffron yellow can be utilized on your curtains as the final touch to properly dress your window because it is a subtle yet effective way to provide warmth to your curtains. Don't feel stuck with a Plain Linen Union—consider Pretty Maids, Leaf Dance, Gypsy Garland, and more—we have many printed fabrics in Saffron as options!

 

  

How to measure up for your curtains:

A video guide to help you measure up 

Please remember that pattern repeats and fabric widths are automatically calculated if you order through our website. 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 and double 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)- 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 and double 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)- 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.
