Made to Measure Curtains

Can you make made to measure yellow curtains for me?

Yellow is the colour which makes me think of flowers, lemons, and sunshine.  It offers fresh appeal in each of its many variations.  

What could be more inviting than a brightly coloured curtain fabric and a scattering of yellow cushion covers to welcome you home? The colour of eternal summer, we can’t think of any shade we would rather come home to on a bleak winter’s day – or better, a warm spring evening.

Saffron, this beautiful strong shade of ochre yellow fabric is fresh enough and strong enough to make beautiful yellow curtains and sit happily with darker shades of grey such as my winter, Charcoal and Scree and works particularity well for living rooms curtains.

The following designs encompass these yellow and soft grey colours: Gypsy Garland, Origami, Shibori, Stockholm Stripe and Pretty Maids.

My softer Buttercup yellow, is the perfect partner for the gentler blue-grey Clay with added accents of Charcoal, this combination of yellow and grey striped fabric is very pretty for kitchen, bathroom and bedroom curtains, exemplified in my designs Songbirds, Fruit Garden and French Ticking.

The counter-balance between the warmth and cheerfulness of the yellow and the cool greys is perfect. The grey and yellow interiors create happiness and warmth and are spectacular in the evening when the sun is going down and the fire is lit.

Hay is my softest yellow, beautiful for elegant sitting room or bedroom curtains and Fern and Dragonfly and coordinating Lapland Stripe too.

My Sand yellow reflects the colour of golden beaches can be more sophisticated in a sitting room of dining room, adding warmth without the brightness through sandy yellow upholstery and curtains.  See my Sand in the designs Cow Parsley and coordinating Stripe and Dash. This colour coordinates beautifully with blues.

With my Straw I have moved towards a mustard yellow as in Fruit Garden and Sepals and Petals and Acorn and Leaf. The mustard and grey upholstery fabrics add that warmth and light to a room.

Which of your patterns and fabric colours go well with yellow?

I have teamed my Straw and Sand yellows with Pigeon and Cornflower blues, counterbalancing the warmth of the yellow with the cool of the blues. So, plenty of colours to build the scheme around in your sitting rooms and halls.

We can make all these into exquisite curtains through our Made to Measure curtain 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. These 100% Linen fabrics are traditionally handwoven in Southern India and Linen and are particularly suitable for curtains. 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.
