The length of your curtains is a matter of personal taste. Lace looks pretty to the window sill, elegant when falling to puddle on the floor, or anywhere in between. You might like to hang a single panel on each window to act as an accent to your regular drapes, or two panels to emphasize the window. Some people like the effect of layering lace panels.
The choices are yours as you put the perfect finishing touch to your personal room. Our lace window coverings are finished with a pocketed top that will accommodate a rod or dowel. Most of the curtains come with a header above the rod pocket which creates a finished softer look. An option is to use it as your rod pocket to give you extra length. Always carefully thread the rod through the rod pocket of the curtain to prevent any possible tearing of the rod pocket.
Our curtain panels are generally supplied finished and no sewing is required, they are ready to hang.
All our curtains are measured in inches ( 1" = 2.54 cm ) as many of our customers prefer this. The length is measured from the top of the finished edge to the bottom, so this would include the header
Our seamstress will be happy to adjust our lace panels and yardages to your desired lengths. Please inquire. We are happy to accomodate custom sizes or matching accessories Please be certain of your measurements as alterations are not returnable.
Care & Cleaning
Our laces are of the highest quality and low maintenance. Our curtains may be hand or machine washed on a delicate cycle. We recommend putting the curtains in a pillowcase to protect the threads. Machine drying is not recommended. Simply rehang a curtain damp and give a gentle stretch to retain its width and length. Some people like to iron them, so please make sure it is a cool iron. Expect a minimal amount of shrinkage when they are first washed.
We recommend using the same method for curtains that have rayon or polyester threads. These often soften when washed.
Bleaching is not advised for any of our curtains as it weakens the fibers and often discolours them.
