Make Your Own Headings For Lace Windows
How To Make a Cased Heading For Lace Windows
Decide where the rod or fitment is to be hung and then measure the depth of the window from the sill to the top of the rod. Measure the circumference of the rod, add between 1-3cm (3/8 – 1 ¼ in) for ease and double this measurement for the casing. This will be the cut length of the panel. Casings for elasticated wires need only be 3cm (1 ¼ in) deep.
1. As the hem edge of lace panels is usually decorative, measure the length up from the hem edge. Cut off the excess fabric from the top edge of the lace windows fabric.
2. Turn under the casing allowance twice. Pin and top-stitch across the casing close to the folded hem edge. Top-stitch across the casing again against the top folded edge.
3. Slot the rod or wire through the casing and hang the lace windows panel in place.
How To Make a Case Heading
Form and stitch the casing along the panel, with the extra fabric between the top line of the casing stitching and the panel head.
How To Make a Stand Heading
If you allow extra fabric above the casing this will form a short stand or, if the fabric is wider than the window, as lightly gathered frill. Add twice the stand depth to the casing measurement.
