For James’ room, I wanted wide horizontal blue and white striped drapes, and made them from a West Elm Shower Curtain. The color is called dusty navy and the material is 100% cotton. Three problems: 1) I prefer a rod pocket as opposed to the way it’s meant to hang on hooks, 2) it’s too short for the room at 74×72 inches, and 3) it’s not lined.
Here are how my blue and white drapes turned out in James’ room after I lined and hemmed them.
I used white rope and an inexpensive wall hook as a tie back so the room can still receive lots of sunlight. On the picture below, you can also see where I added the extra fabric to the drapes. I tried to line up the stripes so the width of the stripes would be about the same, but it’s not perfect. Also, I should have used blue thread so you couldn’t see the seam as well.
