How to Match Patterns when Curtain Making?

Have you ever struggled to accurately match the patterns on your Curtain Fabrics? Most of us have but it is reasonably easily fixed. It is as simple as this:

  • Match the patterns, from the front of the fabric by pressing a turnover on one of your edges to match.
  • Then pin in place on the front of the fabric and hand sew the two pieces together using a ‘ladder’ stitch.
  • As there is usually no stress on the seam in curtains hand stitching rather than machine stitching is absolutely fine.
