Simplicity curtain pattern styles include straight panels with gathered or grommet headings and cafe-style curtains.The pattern packs also include patterns for various types of valances, festoons, jabots and blinds. Valance styles include some simple scalloped, rectangular and back-tabbed designs, as well as more complicated designs involving procedures such as piping, cording and pleating.
Simplicity patterns describe the curtains as drapery panels and display examples of the finished products on the front of the packet. The back of each pattern packet details the amount of fabric and lining material and the length of buckram needed to make each set of curtains in a choice of finished lengths and widths. The pattern also recommends the type of fabric best-suited to each design.
Simplicity patterns are made from tissue paper. The sewer cuts the pattern to fit the chosen window size and pins the pattern onto the material before cutting it to the correct dimensions.
