Roman Blind

Roman blindsis a widely known type of curtains that is compact in size compared to a classic curtain, but looks very effective on a window. This article provides a detailed description of the Roman blinds manufacturing process Curtain size in finished form: height 1.52 m, width 1.15 m. To make a Roman curtain you will need the following materials and tools: 1. two types of fabric (top fabric - organza, lining fabric - veil), 2. sewing thread in the color of the fabric, 4 coils, 3. fiberglass inserts, 4 pcs., length 1.15m, 4. weighting agent, 1 pc., 1 14 m long, 5. sewing machine, 6. overlock, 7. iron, 8. Velcro soft, 1.15 m long, 9. cornice for Roman shades, to a height of 1, 52 m, and a width of 1.15 m. 10. plastic transparent rings, 12 pcs., 11. plastic plastic limit switches, 3 pieces. 12. safety pins, 13. chalk tailor, 14. glass beads on satin ribbon, 2.20 m. Before cutting, it is necessary to iron both fabrics very well so that they immediately give maximum shrinkage. Otherwise, if the fabrics "sit down" in the finished curtains,it will negatively affect its appearance and linear dimensions.
 the Roman curtain is shown in the diagram
The diagram shows the Roman curtain in finished form. In a cut, the curtain should be of this size: height - 1.60 m, width - 1.17 m.
Align one longitudinal and one cross-section of both fabrics (in height and the width of the future curtains). It is better to do this by spreading the fabric on the floor (preferably on a carpeted floor so that it does not slide). text-align: center; "> Sew the chopped sections on the overlock
Sew the chipped cuts on the overlock. Do not forget to remove the pins in the course of work so that they do not fall under the overlock knife. Pinned the processed sections into a stretch on the ironing table, iron and leave until they cool completely.
 Spread the curtain on the floor
Spread a curtain on the floor. From the treated cut, set aside the width of the curtain (1.17 m) in the opposite direction.In the finished form, the width of the curtain is 1.15 m, but we add 1.5 cm to the seams and 0.5 cm to the cut. The line of the second side of the curtain is marked with chalk. Split layers of tissue, cut along the intended line. Remove pins. Throw out the side curtain sections of the curtain separately from each other. Iron the treated sections as the first stitches. If the stitches are not delayed (i.e., fix the desired length with the iron), then later the stitches will be strongly tightened, which will spoil the look of the curtains. Pay attention to the markings of the curtains in finished form. In it one wide kulisk (under weighting) is processed, and 4 narrow kulisks (under fiberglass inserts). Before marking these cusps, grind the sections of the curtains, veneered separately, with each other. Then mark out the wings according to the scheme. The width of the drawstring under the weighting agent is 3.5 cm, the narrow drawstring is 1 cm. The distance between the drawstring (on the “A” diagram) is the same, 21 cm.
 Stitch the second side seam curtains

 Mark the drawstring on the front side
Mark the drawers on the front side Mark the drawers on the front side of the curtain, and sweep both layers of fabric 5 mm from the drawstring line with hand stitches. This will help to avoid shifting the layers relative to each other in the process of laying lines. Lay the stitches on the drawstring. Delete the mash. Pull all the drawstrings in the same way as the seams.
 Iron the upper cut of the curtains
Press the upper cut of the curtains on the pins to the wrong side. Cut the seam allowance to 4 cm. Then, iron this seam allowance in half, pin in several places with pins, in order to avoid displacement of the fabric layers relative to each other due to the thickness.

Stitch a loop from the seamy side
Cut 2 loops from the organza to catch the lower part of the curtain. The size of the loop in the cut is 40 * 18 cm. Fold the loop along in half, stitch along the cuts with a seam 1 cm wide, leaving a small hole in the longitudinal seam for turning. Turn the loop on the front side, iron. Mark the location of the hinges on the curtains. They will be located at a distance of 36 cm from the side seams.

small folds
Adjust the loop on the front side of the curtain by putting in 2 small folds. Sew on the ends and rings from the wrong side of the Roman curtain. The end pieces are sewn on the kuliska under the weighting agent, the rings - on the kulisks under the fiberglass inserts.The outer rings and limit switches are sewn at a distance of 8 cm from the side seam, and the central rings are sewn in the middle between them. Finish the finished curtain if necessary. Assemble the eaves for roman blinds. Hang it on the eaves, and attach the eaves to the ceiling or wall above the window.
