I've never made them. I've seen them in Pinterest and loved them, however I've never seen any IRL that looked good. They've all looked like a cheap fix, but not a real solution.

Hmmm .... that's not good. Maybe it's in the execution? I've seen the ones where they just clip them up and they do look questionable. I'm going to hem them and finish the top so the curtain rod can go through.

They didn't hang correctly. The fabric is too stiff to fold nicely all the way down. It fold at the top but at the bottom it fans out and looks stiff.

I've made all kinds of curtains, but I've never heard of these. What are they like?

That's good to know. I'm going to wash them first, hopefully that may help.

You use a big canvas painter's drop cloth, they look kind of like a knock off linen.

Hmmm sounds interesting! I've never made them or heard of them before so here is a bump!
