Once you have decided the curtain pattern, mark the point from where you will start cutting. Use a light marker to make it easier for adjustments. The type of window will determine how you design your curtains. For French doors or windows the curtain opens in the middle therefore, you need two pieces of fabric. While cutting, leave a space of one inch or two along the edges for the hems. For ordinary windows and doors, the fabric should be one piece only.
Even today, there are a number of women who prefer heavy traditional curtains over contemporary shades. It makes them feel proud to decorate their homes with heavy and expensive curtains. There are shade makers that specialize in making traditional curtains. Not only was the blind material and design of utter importance, even the blinds rods that these blinds were to be hung on got special attention. Blinds rods were made from wood, iron and bronze. The ends of the shade rods were also specially made to match the traditional curtain that was to be hung from it.
Cotton was the main fabric used in traditional blinds, as it could be easily dyed in different colours, and designs could be woven in the fabric or printed on them. Lace blinds, with different designs woven in them, were also an extensive and essential part of traditional shades. In fact, lace curtains are quite popular even today.
