I made these curtains with an old-fashioned diner in mind. I had visited a local quilt shop and saw this fabric and knew it was destined for curtains ... not a quilt. :-)

There are four panels included in this sale. I have shown all four together on a large window, but if you check the width of these, you can see they would work on two windows of the right size. Manufacturers will tell you that curtains should be 1 1/2 times the width of the window, but I like a fuller look. Please keep all of this in mind when measuring your windows. All four are shown on a window that is 49" wide.

Measurements for EACH panel are: 18" drop (length) and 26" width. I have shown them as cafe curtains, but if you have a very tall window, these would work as valances, also. As well, I have seen some people use these deeper valances for French doors. I believe this only works if you have swinging doors, rather than sliding. Otherwise, you will be ducking your head to go under them. The rod pocket is 1 1/2", and I am showing it gathered on a spring-tension rod.

To maintain the '50s retro diner look of the fabric, I have sewn these in a slightly unconventional way. Please see the fourth photograph, along with reading this explanation. All edges of the fabric were serged prior to assembly. The bottom hem is only turned up 5/8", so that the black ribbon design is not lost. The outside edges are completed in the same way with a 1/2" turn. The rod pocket is finished traditionally.

These cotton curtains will need to be washed in cold water, dried 'til slightly damp, and pressed with the appropriate iron setting. They just are not heavy enough to "hang" the wrinkles out.

I am also listing the remainder of the fabric, which is the blue design, for custom curtains. I can make these no larger than this listing, but they could obviously be made smaller.

Thank you for looking.
