Standard Hem Measurements – Part 7

Draperies usually require weights for proper hanging.  Sometimes, there is sufficient material for the hem to be used as a weight.  If possible, add eight inches to the length of a curtain or drape and fold it twice for a 4 inch hem.

Valances require a narrower hem.  Add four inches and fold twice for a 2 inch hem.
