Measuring your voile panel

Pretty up your windows with our simple step-by-step guide to making voile panel curtains

Step 1) Measure the width of your window recess and the drop from the curtain pole to the floor.

Step 2) Using the illustration as a guide [directional], cut a rectangle in your first main fabric to these measurements plus 5cm in total along the width for side seams; and 50cm in total along the drop for top and bottom hems. This includes around 30cm for the curtains to ‘pool’ on the floor. Cut another panel to the same size in your second main fabric.
