Made to Measure Curtains

My Wildflower Collection takes its inspiration from the delicate shapes of cow parsley, dog roses, daisies and dandelions, found in hedgerows, gardens and woodland. Cow Parsley is one of our most beautiful wildflowers giving so much pleasure in May and June. 

My timeless wildflower fabric, Cow Parsley, shows small simplistic butterflies sitting on the heads of the quintessential English wildflower. Again, I have slight obsession with spots and stripes, which are ever evident on the delicate wings of British butterflies.

With Dandelion Trellis I celebrate the fun and beauty of dandelion clocks.

My bold floral fabric Wild Rose, inspired as suggested by its name, from the delicate shape of hedgerow Dog Roses. The same flower head is depicted in Songbirds, making the two floral fabrics easy to use together in the same room.

Songbirds make beautiful yellow and grey floral fabric curtains with its slightly Oriental pattern: between the florals and birds are gentle meandering vertical stripes filled with delicate lines and spots. This design is also available in wallpaper. Bird pattern fabrics and wallpapers work particularly well in bedrooms, sitting rooms, bathrooms and hallways.

Lazy Daisy is my most classic pink English wildflower fabric. In gentle soft hues of pink, the daisy flower heads nod to each other and create an old English cottage garden feel. This design also comes in a larger scale in a Duck Egg Blue flower fabric called French Floral, perfect for feminine bedroom floral curtains.

These wildflower made to measure curtain fabrics are printed on 100% Linen. In addition a Lampshade made from one of these floral linen fabrics to match your curtains would be great focal point in a room, as would a chair, cushions and even a quilt. We can make all these especially for you in at our Made to Measure service.

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.
