A fabulous solution for those beautiful french doors, or the window you prefer the curtains not to hang down past, the hourglass curtain is surely a great fit for Farmhouse Style. There are many great tutorials on curtain making to be found, but this one I provide here is very comprehensive and easy to follow in my opinion. www.alternative-windows.com provides several free tutorials and also sells a book of curtain making instructions that includes some of my favorite designs (triple pleat for example).
My favorite aspect of the hourglass curtain is that it isn't just about the fabric, you also get to add a bit of trim, ribbon or other material in order to bunch your fabric in the center. This is a great spot for a bit of panache. Think beads, a pom, a beautiful antique tag, get crafty and creative here. If it can be strung, it can be hung...
