Made to Measure Curtains

Full made to measure service, curtains, roman blinds, tie backs, cushion covers and pelmets.

I am able to make your curtains using one of the fabrics I am able to supply or using your own fabric.

If you are supplying your own I will advise you how much fabric you will need to purchase with your quotation.  Once you have your fabric I can collect from you at a suitable time or you can deliver to me, whichever is easiest.

As there are various header types available please see the useful guide below.

If you would like to discuss your requirements please contact me.

I pride myself on the quality of my work, there are no hidden extras.  I always insert a lead weight at each corner and vertical seam (these aid the hang of the curtain) as standard.  When using a corded header tape I sew a fabric bag to hold the cords (no more unsightly cords hanging down) at no extra charge.

I also use a quality curtain lining (220gsm per square metre), if you would like a sample please just ask.

Pencil Pleat

a manufactured header tape is sewn onto the top of the curtain, it has cords running through which are pulled up to create the gather.  The tapes are available in various thicknesses ranging from 1" - 6", I use a 3" cotton tape unless otherwise specified.

 

Tabtop

large loops are sewn on the top of the curtain through which a pole is inserted to hang them.

 

Pinch Pleat

there are various forms of Pinch Pleat headings, the most popular is a Triple Pleat. They are formed by sewing individual pleats in sets of 3 (triple pleat) or 2 (double pleat) across the top of the curtain.  Once the pleats are sewn the curtains cannot be adjusted to fit another window, with this in mind it is important to have acurate measurements.

 

Goblet and Cartridge Pleat

these are a variation of the Pinch Pleat heading above, they are formed using the same technique of sewing the pleats across the top of the curtain and as such cannot be adjusted once made.

 

Eyelets

this heading is made by punching holes across the top of the curtain and inserting a metal hoop which is secured in place using a 1 tonne press.
