per lined panel based on finished width of 24″ x 96″ 

Pinch pleat curtains are wonderfully versatile. They can be made to hang on either tracks or rods, and there are a number of different pinch pleat styles to suit any interior.  The photo on the left shows what a typical 3 finger  pinched pleat panel will look like.

Most drapery fabric is 54″ wide, when sewn each panel will be approximately 24″.  To determine the number of panels you’ll need to cover an opening simply take the size of the opening and divide by 24″.

Things to consider

You need to allow for stack-back, space the drapery will take up next to the opening when drawn to clear the opening.  The more glass or window area you want to have uncovered, the greater the amount of stack-back you will have and the room needed beside the opening to accommodate it.  A good rule of thumb is to allow for 1/3 of the width for stack-back.

Of course, if you are only looking to frame the opening with side panels you may only need 1 width of fabric or for a illusion of fullness  – 1 1/2 widths per panel which gives you 24-36″ of beautiful accent drapery bringing colour, softness and height to your room.
