Now prepare the patterns. The main fabric for the curtain: add the length and height of the lambrequin, add 17 cm to the hem from the bottom, and 2 cm to the hem from the top. Cut out the cuts taking into account that their width will be equal to the width of the future curtain. Then cut the lining fabric into the same cuts, only making them on the 8? 10 cm shorter.
