How to Sew Pinch Pleat Curtains Taking the correct measurement is the key factor for a perfect finish. The width of pinch curtains is usually the double of the drapery rod. This is because the pleats will be compacted, due to which more width is needed. The length is measured till the floor. Now start making the curtain with the provided fabric. The process starts with making the panel for the rod. The sides of the panel are left raw since the curtain rod will pass through it. Stitch the ends after passing the rod. Making the pleats is also very simple. Take a strip of fabric, fold it and then stitch the below the panel to make the pleats. Repeat the process till the end of the width. You can make each pleat of half inch. Cluster three pleats together and tie a tape around them from at least 4 inches from the top of the panel. Fix three pleats together after every cluster and follow the same pattern for the entire width. Now, attach the curtain hooks to the panel to hang the curtain. Once you have hung it properly, the pinch pleats will be prominent and the curtain will acquire a dense volume. Curtain Designs
