The first step
Measure the window opening, these results add another 15 inches for allowances top and bottom of Roman blinds, as well as five inches at the side seams.
On the wrong side of the fabric using chalk or a piece of dry soap to mark the location of the rings, the fold lines and tuck.
Ensure that the distance between pleats was identical, otherwise the curtains will turn out with an ugly drape.
First treat the lateral edge and the upper edge of the fabric. To the upper cut sew the Velcro-the Velcro that attaches the curtain. Velcro is the most convenient option: to easily remove curtains for washing and hang them back.
Tuck the bottom part of the curtains — to create space for the weight bar. Then on the reverse side curtains stitch finishing the edge. In the resulting “pockets” insert slats.
By using furniture nails or a stapler, attach to the bottom of a wooden bar Velcro. At it then will be attached curtains.
Go to the layout position of the rings. Then sew them manually. On a wooden beam they are fixed with nails to the lifting mechanism was well fixed.
With the help of Velcro, attach the curtain to a wooden beam. Then thread the cord to the top of the curtains through all the rings. Repeat with all the rings. Keep using the top ring cords all came out on one side of the curtains.
Pull the cords as tight as you can — so the pleats will be distributed across the width of the curtains. And fix the cords with cords.
Install wooden beams on the window frame. For this you will need a drill and screws.
Then remove the ribbon used to fix the pleats. When the curtain goes down, align the tension of all the cords.
