How your Custom Made Voile Curtains are Made
Your designs are printed onto the sheer voile fabric using dye sublimation. This is where the inks are fused deep into the fibers to create a vibrant, permanent print. The material is cut to meet your bespoke dimensions, and our seamstresses hem the edges and finish your made to measure net curtains by hand. Please note that if you select a pair of UK net curtains, we print your design onto a large panel of voile fabric and then split it in half. This is so when the curtains are pulled together, your design matches up.
For widths over 59", several panels may need to be stitched together, as the fabric comes on a roll with a maximum width. If this is the case, we'll contact you to confirm before proceeding. We always try to ensure the seam doesn't interrupt your design, but please understand that the seam might be visible.
How to Measure your Curtains
You need to accurately measure the dimensions of the area to see if you need a pair, single panel or multiples. So that you're net curtains aren't flat against the window when pulled to, it's essential to account for ruffles/pleats/fullness. They come with an 3.15" pencil pleat heading tape, so measure the width of the window and multiply it by two.
Example: window width is 78.74". 78.74" x 78.74"= 157.48" of fabric.
To avoid disappointment, we recommend an additional 0.4 of fabric all around to compensate for hemming and possible fabric shrinkage.
Here's some pointers to design your custom made voile curtains with the best results. If you're looking for an alternative room divider, solid block color designs make your curtains transparent and are ideal for attaching to beams and helping to create a dynamic room arrangement. For more privacy, choose designs that have a lot of details and bold prints. They will still be sheer and semi-transparent, but shapes will not be as visible.
Due to the sheerness of the fabric, colors are muted but details are still crisp well defined. The front of your custom made voile curtains produces more saturated colors compared to the back.
