|This tutorial will show you how to measureÂ your panels to make lined grommet curtains with interlining. Interlining can give nice shape and body to any curtain, but does the most for silky, light curtains. I’m making mine from a heavier fabric, but I wanted to demonstrate how to use it. Interlining is also great for insulating your windows and reducing heat loss. I’m also using blackout lining to help keep a bedroom darker. Next week, we’ll get to the actual sewing and grommets. Finally, the zigzags? Well, chevron fabrics are all the rage, and we have tons! Just search “Zig Zag” on our site.

|The yardage you’ll need depends, obviously, on the window you’re dressing. We’ll discuss how to calculate that below. Also, please take advantage of our yardage calculator!
For this project, I had 5 yards of the main fabric and 4.25 yards of each of the other materials.
