Start by feeding each eyelet over your curtain pole, making sure that the leading edge of the curtain is pointing in towards your window. The leading edge is where your curtains meet in the middle.

Also, the size of your window may affect your choice; calculating your window dimensions is the next step. The Window Another option for making the curtains have a fuller width is to buy made-to-measure curtains. This way, you can choose how full the width of your curtains is. Made-to-measure curtains can be expensive, but they will hang the best because of their custom fit. Deciding on the Fabric
Even if your curtains are not against a wall, the rear side of the curtain will be on show. Therefore, the evenness of the eyelets will affect how they hang on the rod.
Also, remember to calculate the length of your windows before you buy a rod. Curtain rods are available in set lengths or find extendable ones. It is important to find the right size because this will affect the curtain you need to cover the window. Pleated Curtains? First of all, how long do you want your eyelet curtains to be? You might want them to hang on the floor, or if you have low ceilings, you might want the curtains to hang just below the window. You should decide on this before you buy.
When buying this tape, please allow one extra eyelet’s worth to ensure the correct stating position of the tape. The first eyelet for the leading edge of the curtain is cut between the two plastic spacing clips. The outer edge should match the leading edge.

Hanging curtains on a pole can be simple if both sides of the curtains are threaded in the same way. Begin by ensuring that you thread the curtain fabric, to begin with the middle section of the curtain. This is the part of the curtain you want to be in the middle of your window.

Write the numbers down so that they are on hand for you to compare when shopping. You want to buy curtains that are bigger than the window; otherwise, when you close them, they will not cover the entire window. Extra Tip
At this stage, you should take time to make sure your gathers are nice and even. It may take a little time, but it will be worth it! You may choose to buy other types of curtains, such as pencil pleats. Pencil pleat curtains are usually attached to a rail affixed above the window.
