Parisian pleat question

5 years ago


I am planning on modifying semi custom curtains (sheer white) to create Parisian pleats / Europleats (pinched at the top).

-- I came across a (US) website that recommends 4 inches for the spaces and 6 inches for the pleats. However, when using a curtain pleat calculator (Euro website), I get around 4 inches for the spaces and just a little over 4 inches for the pleats. I want three finger pleats. Will the dimension for pleats suggested by the calculator result in my curtains looking a little off?

-- What size of buckram do you suggest? The hems will probably be 2 1/2 inches at the top and bottom, and the panels will likely be 86" long.

Thank you in advance!
