Dorothy's Originals - Custom Ruffled Program - Window diagram

Measuring Lengths

The most desirable position for hanging full-length ruffled style is from the ceiling to the floor. Using a measuring tape or yard stick, measure from the ceiling or at the base of the ceiling’s molding to the floor. This is your curtain’s overall length and includes the height of the header.

Top of Window To-Floor

Another option for hanging our full length curtain is from the top of the window to the floor. Using a measuring tape or yard stick, measure from the top of the window casing or frame to the floor. For the overall length, add the height of your curtain’s header to this measurement.

Ruffled Valances Inserted Between Ruffled Curtains

When inserting a ruffled valance between a pair of ruffled curtains on a sliding glass door, oversized window, or a triple window follow these steps: (1) determine the curtain width you wish to use based on the window width to be covered,(2) mesure the remaining window area and convert this distance into the width of your valance.
