How to Measure
Measuring a curtain width
For your made to measure curtains – Always measure the curtain track or pole width, not the window. If fitting a new track or pole, this should extend 15cm to 30cm either side of the window (to allow the curtains to be stacked back off the window) and 12cm to 15cm above the window recess.Do not include the finals in the measurement.
Measuring a curtain drop
Curtains are best hung either to the floor, to a sill or below the sill. We recommend tha curtains finish either: –
A 1cm above the floor
B 15-20cm below the sill (or 2cm above the radiator)
C 1cm above the sill
Always measure in at least 3 positions across the track or pole as floors and sills are rarely level. To avoid curtains dragging across the floor or sill we always recommend you use the shortest of these 3 measurements.
Tab Top Heading
Tab Top headings have 12.5cm long tabs (included in the curtain drop) and are suitable for poles up to 45mm in diameter. Measure from the top of the pole to where you want the curtains to finish ( Cannot be used with tracks)
The inner edge of the eyelet is set down 4cm from the top of the curtain. Measure from the top of the pole to where you want the curtains to finish and add 4cm. ( Cannot be used with tracks)
40mm eyelets will fit poles up to 30mm in diameter.
50mm eyelets will fit poles up to 35mm in diameter.
66mm eyelets will fit poles up to 50mm in diameter.
Pencil Pleat, Pinch Pleat, Double Pleat, Triple Pleat and Goblet Heading
When using a curtain track, measure from the top of the track to where the curtain is to finish.
When using a curtain pole, measure from the underside of the decorative ring to where you want the curtain to finish
Our lead time for Curtains varies according to our makers work load, usually between 3-6 weeks. However it can be upto 7 weeks during busy periods. We will let you know a confirmed time scale prior to you ordering.

A little about us here at Lilymae Designs:
It’s time to introduce ourselves!
Tucked away in the Essex country side we are a Mum & Daughter team.
Mum – Jaine, is the talented one who creates all our lovely products.
Daughter – Sam, I do all the talking & typing! Its me you’ll speak to via email & social media
When we were little Mum was forever crafting & making all sorts for us, from our school costumes to our bedroom curtains. It was in 2010 when her first Grandchild Maia Lily arrived that this passion was reignited and then in 2013 when we were lucky enough to also welcome Daisy Mae into our lives LilyMae Designs was established.
Can anyone else relate to a Mum who calls it ‘Book Face’ or still thinks the only way to get online is by typing the entire website address in the google search bar… well that’s where I come in. With an abundance of goodies that couldn’t be kept secret we set to work on this website.
We are a unique home decor business, offering a growing range of items designed to make all the nurseries and children’s bedrooms out there look beautiful!
When you buy a product from us you are not only buying something that is personalised just for you, you are buying something that is 100% handmade by us in the UK. We take great care in our work and we ensure everything is perfect and finished to an extremely high standard before it leaves our studio.
Whether you know your fabric choices already or need help, our team absolutely love helping our customers so please just get in touch. We also offer free fabric samples posted to your door, as we know how difficult deciding between our fabrics can be!
Hope to hear from you soon.
