Each panel is 96" long, I wanted them from ceiling to floor to give height to the room.
I cut 104" length of fabric for each panel and sewed 1/2" hem on each side of the panel. I did a 4" hem on the top and a 4" hem for the bottom.
I have seen other curtains made with ribbon for the tabs, I wanted the same fabric for the tabs. So, I cut 3" strip of fabric and sewed it into a long tube. Then ironed the tube flat and cut into 4 1/4" strips.
I sewed the tabs about 6" apart starting from the end to give it a nice pleat. You can space it out according to the pleat you prefer and the width of the fabric.
And here it is hanging up in my new master bedroom...
I am thrilled with the way they came out. The most difficult part of this project was cutting the fabric panel at an even length.
Thanks for stopping by!
