How to sew pencil pleat curtains

Measure the windows to determine the size of fabric you will need.

Then cut out the right fabric for the specific window size.  Make sure the fabric is a little bigger than the window size to leave room for stitches.  The next step is to hem the bottoms of the lining and the exterior. Sew the hem as you properly keep the layers in place.

After sewing the lining, it needs to be attached to the exterior and properly aligned.  The final thing you need to do is to insert the pleating tape. But before doing this, you need to finish the top edge to make it smooth. Once that is done and the pleating tape is inserted, your sewing task is complete.
