How to find a Long Curtain, a Curtain Over 100 Inches.

If you are reading this blog post, you probably already spent many hours trying to find an extra long curtain to fit your window.

Newer houses today are coming with longer & longer windows, including extra height from the installation of transoms over the modern designer windows.

You certainly have the custom option, but you have probably found out, that option is going cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

This might not be the easiest solution, like just clicking on the button & the curtain shows up on your door step for $19.99, but with my method I will get you close.

This is an outside the box idea that will save a ton of dough & you will have several fabrics & colors to choose from.

Here is what you do, you purchase a scarf panel, most stock scarf panels are 60” wide and 216” long, basically a flat piece of finished fabric.

If your window is less than 108 inches, you will even get two for the price of one.

So now you have the scarf panel, the average price of the ones we sell at Swags Galore is about $19.99.

Here are a few options:

1. If you have zero skills you can take the panel to the dry cleaner & have the seamstress sew a pocket, it will probably take her 5 minutes & cost about $5.00.

2. Cut to length, fold the top and hang the panel from clip rings. Normally when a window is that high up no one sees the top anyway.

3. Add Velcro to the top & attach it to the curtain rod.

4. If you have any sewing skills, you can sew the pocket by yourself by hand or with a sewing machine if you have one.

Anyway, these are just some ideas for an easy low cost alternative, to add a curtain to your extra long windows. Especially when you have been spending weeks & months looking for something that you were beginning to thing doesn’t exist.
