Well, whether you agree with my choice or not, I thought that this would be a great time to show you some basic sewing skills and how to make a simple curtain for a French door.
- A-sew together panels to make the fabric wider or
- B-Use more panels to cover the width but leave them separate.
Also measure the length. Then, add a couple of inches at the top and 3 or 4 inches at the bottom for the hems. I will be using a spring loaded curtain rod that fits inside my window frame to hold my curtain. But, the method I am showing you would also work with a regular rod that is screwed onto the outer parts of the window molding. I like to be generous with the hems for a couple of reasons:
- There will be enough fabric to finish them correctly, eliminating problems with fraying.
- A nice deep hem at the bottom looks professional and adds weight to help the curtain hang nicely.
