I find this is helpful and am learning a lot
I am not a professional person to make curtains, but I always make for family friends.
I got a project to make curtains for the whole house (3 bedrooms + living and dining), which 2 of BayWindow
Using swish aluminium corded tracks,
I want to make all the triple and double pleats, using 15cm & 10cm buckram.
I want to hide the track as well
Do you think might be easier to buy the header instead of buckram for the bigger windows?
Thanks for your help
We always make double pleat and triple pleat curtains using buckram (not with a heading tape).
There are tutorials for both these curtain heading types on the website. In the videos you will see the buckrams and hooks we use for our customers.
If you are looking to hide the track just beware that the fabric between the pleats will push forward when the curtains are stacked back rather than fold back behind. (we show this in the video of STEP 1 of the tutorial). You may need smaller spaces between the pleats to make it look neater when stacked back (which would mean more fabric as you would have more pleats in the curtain).
