Regular Window Measurements
Step 1: Measure the width of the window from one end of the outside frame to the other
Step 2: Measure the length of the window from the outside of the top frame to the outside of
the bottom frame
Step 3: Measure the length from the outside of the top frame to the floor
Step 4: Measure the length from the ceiling to the top of the window frame
Calculate The Number Of Fabric Widths
First, you need to calculate how many widths of fabric you will need to cover the width of your window. Measure the length of the track or pole you’re using and multiply this figure by 1.5 if you plan to use standard heading tape, or by 2.5 for pencil pleat tape. Now add on 20cm overall for side hems.
Divide this figure by the width of your fabric. Round up the result to the next whole number. For example, if your pole measures 200cm, multiply by 1.5 (for standard heading tape), and add on 20cm for hems, which equals 320cm. If your fabric measures 122cm wide, the sum is 320 divided by 122, which equals 2.6. The next whole number is 3. So, three widths of fabric, when gathered, will cover the window, and each curtain will be made of 1½ widths of fabric.
If hand washing is recommended, you might want to do it in the bath unless they are quite small. Use a gentle detergent without optical brighteners or bleaching agents that might affect the fabric colour, and make sure it's thoroughly dissolved in the water before adding the curtains. Adopt a gentle squeezing technique rather than a firm rub and rinse thoroughly. Follow the care label or go for a fairly slow spin - the curtains need to be heavy enough with water to smooth themselves out when hung up to dry.
If the curtains are machine washable, then commend yourself for your forethought when you bought them and wash according to the instructions on the care label. Don't overload your washing machine, though - if you have ample drapery, use a large launderette machine.
