Organza is a sheer, soft, finely woven fabric traditionally made from silk, although synthetic fibre organza is more common due to its cheap nature. The delicate fabric requires patience to work with and finished hems to keep from unravelling. Fortunately, organza is versatile enough that you can create curtains using intricate sewing techniques or easy no-sew techniques.
Easy Funky Curtain
Yellow organza, lilac silk blanket binding and fabric glue are all you need to create an easy and funky curtain for an average size window. The wide organza piece is cut three times as long as the window and fabric glue secures the thin lilac binding to the front and back of all four sides.
The trimmed organza hangs evenly over the middle of a white curtain rod. The left piece of fabric loops around the rod loosely two times and hangs down from the left end of the rod. The right piece of fabric echoes the left design, only to the right, to finish the simple and fun style.
Modern Café Curtains
Update the style in any room with triangular cafe#xE9; curtains with a modern touch. Cafe#xE9; curtains hang from a curtain rod secured across the middle of the window and cover the lower half of the glass, leaving the upper half open. A triangle curtain consists of a diamond-shaped piece of fabric folded in half with the edges sewn together. The top point of the triangle faces down and an open loop in the flat bottom slides over the curtain rod.
Each modern triangle curtain consists of jade green organza trimmed along the two hanging sides with thick, flat, green-and-black dotted, linen blanket binding. Three of the triangular curtains hang from a black curtain rod with their edges slightly overlapping to form an angular and crisp modern accent.
Single Bishop Sleeve Curtain
A single bishop sleeve curtain is a long curtain that's wide enough to cover the window, but the middle of the curtain is pulled back to one side of the window to create a sweeping pouf shape. The only drawback to this simple curtain style is that it tends to look boring when paired with plain sheer fabric. Fortunately, the issue is easy to remedy with the help of assorted ribbons.
To create a cheerful vertical-stripe pattern, sew assorted colourful, one-inch wide silk ribbons one inch apart on the front and back of a light blue organza curtain. A thin, silky, dark blue ribbon sewn over the front and back edges of the curtain provides a protective and sharp trim. A dark blue ribbon attached to the wall ties around the organza curtain to pull it towards one side of the window.
