I'm no seamstress, but I figured I could try what Amanda Carol did and buy three curtains, and use the third one for added length. She chose the gorgeous grey and white for her office.
Here are how my blue and white drapes turned out in James' room after I lined and hemmed them.
For the lining, I figured I'd use a lightweight fabric shower curtain liner so the width would match and it would be less expensive than fabric. They do not cover the length of the drapes, just about below the window sill.
I simply stitched them along the top of the drapes, just below the rod pocket I made by folding over about 4 inches of fabric on top.
I ordered these curtains from the store and they were on backorder forever. While on backorder, we received the canopy, which was way too much horizontal stripe action for the room. So, the canopy is going to live in the playroom-that-was-intended-to-be-a-media-room (it will fit better in there too) and James will have more room to move around in his bedroom now.
This shower curtain also comes in yellow and white stripe which would make a pretty happy bathroom!
