Tape top readymade curtains need to be gathered before they can be hung up. If using a track it is usually recommended that you put the hooks into the bottom row of strings so the curtain top covers the track
Pull the readymade curtains along the string to gather them up. The readymade curtains should be gathered to just over half the window width, this will allow them to overlap when closed. Please note that once you have gathered readymade curtains they cannot be returned so make sure you are happy with the size and colour before you start
Once your readymade curtains are gathered to the right width tie off the strings at the inside edge. Do not tie too tightly as it is common to loosen these off after a readymade curtain has been washed. You can, if you wish, trim the strings but again do not trim them too short. The string ends can then be tucked neatly into the tape so as not to be seen
Now hooks should be placed at each end of each readymade curtain and then at intervals of approximately 4"
You can now thread the hooks through the track glides on your track making sure you place a hook through the last track glide which acts as an end cap anchoring the readymade curtains in place.
