Follow a few General rules regardless of your taste. So the curtains need lining in a single ACC. Ensure that when the suture capture needle, one thread basis. In this case, the seam allowance will come out neat, and the stitches invisible from the front side.
Measure the length you need. Check with a tape measure on the crayon on the tulle a line that will show you the required length of the product. This value will affect the width of the ACC. If there is too much fabric, exactly cut off the excess.
Iron the tulle and align the edges if necessary. Fold the edge evenly, making long stitches. For convenience, you can pre-seal the future of seam with pins at a distance of 10 cm from one another. To see your work immediately looked carefully every seam iron.
If you do not cope with the large tulle on the Ironing Board, spread clean sheets on the floor and work on it.
The hem can be run manuallyor you can use a sewing machine or adhesive tape. The choice depends on the style of curtains and your ability. Of hand stitches use podrobnyi oblique and hidden seams.
For a seamless hem look sided adhesive interlining. From it cut a strip the desired length and insert into the pleat allowance. Press open the seam with an iron, be careful not to burn the tulle.
When working on the sewing machine choose a medium or a large stitch length.
If you need to pull the edges of the tulle to lay down beautiful heavy waves, attach special weights for curtains. They come in the form of small metal disks or in the form of a chain. Their weight also varies. His pick is proportional to the length of the tulle and the fabric weight. Typically, the disks are sewn into the side seams.
In the heavy dense fabric weights can be hidden behind the lining. Chain place along the fold line, pin the ends and in several places along hand stitch.
Double-ACC leave 15 centimeters of the fabric, 7.5 on every seam. First, run one ACC, then treat side edges with weights, at the end of the second prostrochite seam of bending the bottom.
In case of insufficient length of the fabric when it is impossible to allocate extra inch, use for processing the edges of the tulle the bias tape of the right color. If you have the style of the curtains, sew a lace braid. Alternatively, you can use to hem the bottom of the tulle strip of fabric from the curtains, which will hang the cloth in the kit.
