Thanks, well the last time I did any sewing was in highschool but hopefully it is like a bike and I didn't forget :)
Ok then you wont find these hard...stairght sewing ...so basically the easiesty way is to cut two fabrics same length...in my case my I had 3 different panels that made one whole one...so you sew your contrasting panels first then join the lining by sewing wrong sides together ...just like sewing a pillow case...and have the bottom open....turn it right side around ...iron all seams flat...now for the top ...the easiest pleat is globe pleat.....to do this you need to mark 4'' spacing them 21/2'' apart ...you then sew all those 4'' of fabric starting from the top of your curtain 6'' down....at the end you will have pleats that look like wine glasses ....at the end you hem the bottom ...I stuff my globe pleats with cotton balls ...it gives it a nice shape on top...let me see if i can take a pic of what i m taking about ....
ok i have taken a pic of front and back.....so you see how the pleats are ....they start on top ...sewn about 6'' downwards ....see the back as well
you can have to back look in the front too...just by sewing exactly same way from the lining side....either way looks nice ...whatever your preference
I dont know if you saw those yellow and grew curtains on one of the post...i think by restoration hardway ...well they were done same way ...the lining side had the globe pleat ....
i hope this helps as i m not very good at writing instruction...thank god i m not a teacher :D
