What Sizes Do Curtains Come in?

Answer

Curtains are sold width x drop. The curtains may be sold in pairs but the sizes refer to each individual curtain when laid flat with no gather. First of all measure the width of your curtain and then the length. If your window measures 46 X 54 in size, this allows for a full and luxurious gather for the curtains.

When determining the size of curtains to buy, it is important to know that certain are sold WIDTH*DROP. Get the measurements for your window and remember that curtains are sold in pairs; this will allow you to fill your window luxuriously.
To size curtains, make sure that a curtain pole is set up. By means of a metal tape, start measuring the width that is the distance between the top of the gable. Then measure from the drop to the desired length of the curtain. Measure next from the eye drop to the desired length and the heading height. Next, find a fabric to start sewing your curtain.
