Handmade Curtain Laura Ashley Mansfield

We Know How Difficult Getting Started Can Be

Let me inspire and demonstrate to you my creative ideas and together we can create curtains fit for your home.

Our Curtains

There are many styles of curtains this is usually with the headings.  Pencil pleat is the most popular, this style is created by different pencil pleat sizes for example 3” or 2” tape.  I can also put a frill above the tape and you can see this on my Facebook page and also website.  I have put these curtains in my dining room.  They are a real show stopper!

Goblet heading is a beautiful way of dressing a window if you’re looking for a more formal look. The goblet pleat resembles a wine glass, I usually trim with a covered button to finish the look.   A home with high ceilings are a perfect suiter with goblet headings.  I place wading inside the goblet heading so that it keeps its shape perfectly.   I have a sample of this in my office for you to have a look.

Box pleat look fantastic and give a tailored look and drape into deep folds down the full length of the curtains.  I have a sample that I have made in my office for you to look at.  This style look fantastic in lounges, dining rooms and studies.

Pinch and tailored pleat give a beautiful decorative finish at the top.  They work well with most fabrics.  There are five types of pinch pleating.  I have examples to show you in my office.  They range from 2 finger pleats up to 5 finger pleats.  With more pleats, the size and fullness of the pleat increases, and so does the fullness of the curtain.
