Quality bespoke made-to-measure curtains in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, Witney, Didcot, Chilterns, Thatham, Newbury and surrounding areas

Even before a stitch is sewn I will help you choose the right style to fit your room’s style. I’ll also ensure the drop is measured correctly and - thanks to my specialist sources - can source a range of unique designs.

My curtains come with hand-sewn hems, side seams and headings for pleats - finished on durable buckram for a high-quality finish. If you want lined curtains, I also provide interlined or blackout backing.

Measuring for curtains is not difficult, but it does need to be done accurately. I’ll take measurements as part of your free consultation, but to get you started, I have put together a guide to show you how it’s done.

Heading tape

Heading tape comes in a range of styles to produce different effects. It’s fixed to the curtain backing and has cords that when pulled, gather the fabric for the desired look. It gives a simple, classic look that’s suited to both poles and tracks.

Triple pleat

Triple pleat consists of a space and three pleats made from stiff buckram backing and is suitable for medium-weight curtains. It can be used with both poles and tracks and is extremely robust.

Double pleats can be chosen as an alternative when a more relaxed look is wanted.

Eyelets

Eyelets are used with poles and are the latest innovation in curtain headers. They are perfect for all kinds of rooms - being neat, tidy, elegant and modern.

I can provide an eyelet setting service on my made to measure curtains and on any other curtains that you already have. Read more about eyelet setting here.
