    2.5 minimum x the width of the window opening. if the fabric is really sheer then 3. Made so many window treatments in the homes we've been in. lol

    Happy sewing.

        I've always figured double the width of the window.

          I just made curtains for my kitchen and I made them 2x the width.

            No less than 2X the width. I like curtains to be full so I usually do 2 1/2 times.

              I like my curtains 2 1/2 times the width, unless the fabric is sheer and lightweight and then x3. It's really personal preference.

                I make them at least twice as wide. More if I want more poofiness. I get sheets...they come in alot of prints and use a twin on each side of a regular size window or if I want a third panel in the middle..I use a third twin sheet. Or use queen size. I have made many curtains this way...added valances and all. Works great and they don't wrinkle!
