Finishing of Drapery Panel
Good afternoon. Hope you all had a great 4th of July. It's time to finish up on that drapery panel. Before doing your hem, you will need to decide where you want your panel to end up after it is hung. Some choose to go right above the sill, others partway down and even others go below. This will be what your preference is. I chose to go below as I wanted my panel to be a little longer.
You will need to measure how long and then add approximately 2 to 3 inches for the hem. Remember to turn over 1/4" so that you hem has a nice finish.
After you decide and have your measuring finished. Then it is time to sew. (Sorry, I am experiencing issues with my picture.)
I now have my panel finished and can do the next one.
Here is my completed project. As you can see, this was pattern that I had to match up. This can make it a little more challenging but not impossible. Take your time and you will be pleased with your finished draperies.
