Custom Pinch Pleat Style Curtains feature a traditional pleated drapery. Perfect for almost any decor and it is well suited for traversing. Pleated draperies are attached to a rod using pin hooks. There are four styles of pleated draperies: Pinch, Crown, Inverted and Goblet.
This panel is sewn to cover the exact size selected. Each drapery panel is sewn with 2.5 times the width to create a luxurious full bodied window treatment.
For a complete window treatment ensemble any of the fabrics below can be made into any of our complimenting custom shades and/or custom top treatments.

Custom Window Treatment Information:
Production Time: 10 - 12 business days
Delivery Time via UPS: 3-5 Standard Days, unless expedited request. Pleated draperies will arrive fan-folded, banded, covered in heavy duty bags and boxed for shipping. For installation, draperies will need to be professionally dressed and steamed to look their best. A professional drapery installer may be found in the yellow pages or on the internet.
Note: It is normal for pleated draperies to be banded by the installer to create even folds in the fabric. These bands may remain on the drapery for up to 3 days. This banding process will train the pleats to fold properly when the drapery is opened or closed. On a 20" width panel there will be 5 pleats. If ordering loose rings for pleated draperies, add one extra ring to account for the lead pleat
Privacy or Blackout Liners may be upgraded to increase your privacy while reducing or eliminating light.
Tie Backs can be added to give your drapery the pulled back, off the window look. Tie-backs are 4” tall and long enough to pull back the treatment half the width of the drapery panel. They are flat, fabric wrapped buckram.
Outside Mount - Outside mounted treatments will be made to the exact dimensions provided.
Width: Measure the exact width of the window, including any frame. Add a minimum of 4” to each side (8” total overlap) to ensure light control and privacy.
Height: Measure the height of the window from the top edge of the molding to the bottom edge of the molding, sill or floor. Add a minimum of 4” to allow for an adequate mounting area above the window.
Note on Returns - The standard return size for draperies is 3-1/2” for pleated styles and 4” for Side Panels.
Inside Mount - Provide the exact sizes of the opening. The workroom will make all necessary deductions for a perfect fit.
Width: Measure inside the window casing at the top, middle and bottom. Record the narrowest measurement. No deduction will be taken on width.

The standard pin setting is 1-3/4”down from the top of the drapery.Other pin settings are available upon request at no charge. The pin setting for an under treatmentis 1/2”. When ordering a drapery with a Decorative Traverse Rod the pin setting is 1/8”.
The workroom will make a 1/2” deduction from the height of draperies used as an undertreatment.
Pleated Draperies mounted on decorative poles with loose rings may “spring back” slightly from the closed position. To prevent this from occurring order the drapery 10% wider than the pole width.
Example: Using a 90” width.10% is 9”. Add this 9” to the drapery width. 90” + 9” = 99”.The rod will remain at 90” wideon the order and the draperyshould be ordered at 99” wide toavoid spring back.
