We have our eyes wide open and are all fully aware of what we do.Some of us made a conscious decision to enter this line of work and some of us just 'fell into it'.
But this curtain is going to make a huge impact on your room.
It is not designed to be an authoritative guide, merely some words of wisdom mixed with a bit of humour.

Also, please read through the instructions before you start – you may find something I did that you would rather do differently and need to adjust accordingly. _UPDATE: A handy rule of thumb here – figure out how long you want your finished curtain to be, then add the extra inches you need for your rod pocket at the top and your hem at the bottom (in this case, my “formula” for the DF looked like this: fabric length = finished length 4”[rod] 7”[hem]).
Then you can figure out the measurements for the liner fabric based on that. With the wrong side facing you and the edge of the fabric intended for the lower edge of the drape pointed toward you, fold the bottom edge up 2” and press, then 5” more and press. Now you are going to do something called a “blind hem”.
