Sheer Curtain Fabrics To Suit Any Window Size & Decor Style

At Spotlight, there are a few different types of sheer curtain fabrics available. Here's a quick breakdown of what you can find:

  • Continuous Sheer Curtain Fabric: Part of our selection of multi-drop sheers, continuous sheer curtain fabrics come complete with a rod pocket tape header at the top, and are finished with either a plain or decorative hem at the bottom. They come in multiple drops within the same design, meaning that you can find fabric in the perfect size to cover the height of your window - with no extra hemming required. Simply purchase the right meterage for the width of your window and you're done!
  • Cut, Hem & Hang Sheer Curtain Fabric: Similar to continuous sheers, these fabrics are available in longer drops so you can cover windows up to 270 cm in height. They come in a range of different curtain heading types including pencil pleats and eyelets.
  • Cafe Sheers & Valance Sheers: Perfect for smaller windows like those in your kitchen or laundry, cafe sheers and valances can add a charming traditional accent to your decor.

Sheer Curtain Fabrics FAQs

How many metres of sheer curtain fabrics do I need for my window?

When you're making your own curtains you must purchase enough fabric to cover your window while also factoring enough fullness or gathering. The standard rule of thumb is to purchase a meterage at least double the width of your window. Beautifully gathered curtains will not only look elegant and properly finished, but a generous amount of volume will add to the privacy benefits of your sheer curtains. You can of course opt for more gathering for an even richer look.

Consider the style of the sheer curtain fabric as well. Bulkier lace curtain fabrics are generally fine with double fullness, whereas a more delicate voile sheer fabric might require triple fullness to create the desired look. If you're covering multiple windows in your home, keep the gathering amount the same on each window so everything looks neat and consistent.

How do I hem sheer curtain fabrics?

There are a few different alternatives for creating a neat finish on your DIY sheer curtains. Depending on the fabric you may not even need to create hems, particularly with multi-drop sheers. Many of these fabrics are created with a finely knitted construction that is not prone to fraying. For other sheer curtains, you can use a sewing machine and thread. Be sure to use a fine and sharp sewing machine needle for delicate fabrics like voiles. You can also use iron-on hemming tapes for a neat and clean finish.

What's the best way to hang my DIY sheer curtains?

You can hang sheer curtains from tracks, curtain rods, tension rods and stretch wire. Some curtain hardware is better suited to certain curtain headers than others. Check out our handy guides on using rods or tracks and how to hang curtains for more information!
