To place your order for cafe curtains, please start by choosing the shade length and width ‘bands’. Then type in your exact measurements (in inches please).
Please note we do NOT require measurements for your windows, frames, poles or tracks. Instead, please enter the exact final sizes of the ready curtain panels you'd like us to stitch.
Next, choose any fabric from our entire collection that you'd like us to use for your curtains. Type in the name of this fabric in the product form above.
Lastly, please choose the heading style you'd like us to stitch for your perfectly cute custom cafe curtains. We have over 14 heading styles on offer.
All orders are processed and dispatched within one week and delivered within one week of dispatch. And shipping is free!
SPIFFY TIP #1: If ordering any of the casual heading styles such as the grommet top, we recommend ordering panels that are double the width of your curtain pole/track. For example, if your curtain pole/window is 36 inches wide, we suggest TWO panels of 36 inches EACH, and not two panels of 18 inches each. This will get you a luxurious fall/gather. If your window/pole is 36 inches wide and you order curtain panels that are also 36 inches wide altogether, they will be absolutely flat with no gather, and who wants that?!
SPIFFY TIP #2: If ordering the pinch pleat styles, we recommend panels that are 8-12 inches wider than your curtain pole/track. So for example, we suggest 68-72 inches wide curtains altogether for a 60-inch wide pole.
SPIFFY TIP #3: We do NOT require measurements for your windows, frames, poles or tracks. Instead, please enter the exact final sizes of the ready curtain panels you'd like us to stitch.
