Cafe Curtains with Swag Valance Cafe curtains are frequently used in kitchen windows, but it can also be used to give two story windows a stylish flair. Mount one drapery rod midpoint from the top window and another just below the ceiling. Choose a rich fabric material like silk dupioni, taffeta or raw silk and hang it from the bottom drapery rod. Allow the drapes to pull to the floor to soften the look. On the top drapery rod, install swag valance in a geometric or floral print making sure that the colors of both the swag fabric and drapery fabric complement one another. Silk and satin swag valance looks the best in such windows and you can trim the valance with tassels and ribbons for a fancier look.
Measurements: First of all, you need to determine the amount of fabric that you would need. This can be easily determined by measuring height and width of the gazebo. As far as the length of the curtains is concerned, you need to buy fabric that is 3 inches longer than the measured height of the gazebo. From these extra 3 inches, 1 inch will be needed for the bottom hem, and 2 inches will be required for the top pocket of the gazebo curtain panels. For the width, the fabric that you purchase should be one and a half times longer than the actual width, plus additional 1 inch on both sides for hemming. Method of Sewing: Always use straight and vertical seams throughout the sewing length of the fabric. First of all, sew a 2 inch deep curtain pocket throughout the length of the top side of the fabric. You can increase the length of the pocket, if you are using thick curtain rods. You also need to add 1 inch hem at the sides and bottom. Once you are done with sewing, all you need to do is attach the curtain to the rod on top of the inside frame of the gazebo. You can also create more decorative additions, like adding hooks, Velcro panels, and decorative panels that are easily available on the market.
Now consider what kind of curtain or drape you'll be hanging. Will it be light and billowy, heavy and insulating or something in between? You guessed it: the weight of the coverings will be instrumental in choosing your rod. Maybe you want a layered look, so you'll be considering double or triple rods.
