How do you shorten curtains without cutting them?
When curtains appear too long, try sewing a hem, which can allow you to shorten curtains without cutting curtains to length so you can retain the fabric if you want to. Another way of shortening curtains is to incorporate a folded design with buttons as fasteners. Folding the curtain hem up creates a double hem.
How do you fix a folded curtain that won’t stay up?
Sewing a basting stitch along the folded section of the curtain provides a temporary hem and a cleaner look than pinning. Basted hems are attractive on both the front and back of the curtain. Sew a long running stitch to secure the folded material in place. Remove it by snipping off the knot and pulling out the thread.
How do you Hem a fold in a curtain without sewing?
Place hem tape under the bottom fold for a no-sew fix. Place a section of the folded curtain on an ironing board in front of you. Remove a few of the pins, then place a strip of iron-on hem tape between the curtain and the innermost fold you made.
