Basic Drapery Panels

To figure yardage for basic drapery panels, you will need the cut length (finished length + allowance for your desired hem and rod pocket size - NOTE: our workroom adds 16") the number of panels you are making.

If your selected fabric has a repeat, you will need 1 panel at the regular cut length and then you will need to add the number of inches in the repeat to each additional panel.

Examples using standard 84" finished length panels:
*Change the number of inches added for hems and rod pockets, as well as repeats, to suit your needs*

Fabric with NO repeat:

  • Panels - 84" + 16" = 100" each panel
  • x 2 panels = 200" (5.625 yards / 6 yards to be safe)
  • x 3 panels = 300" (8.33 yards / 9 yards to be safe)
  • x 4 panels = 400" (11.125 yards / 12 yards to be safe)

Fabric with a 27" repeat:

  • 1st panel - 84" + 16" = 100"
  • 2nd & additional panels - 84" + 16" + 27" = 127"
  • x 2 panels = 227" (6.30 yards / 7 yards to be safe)
  • x 3 panels = 354" (9.83 yards / 10 yards to be safe)
  • x 4 panels = 481" (13.36 yards / 14 yards to be safe)

NOTE: If you are making panels for additional windows, the number of inches in the repeat must be added to ALL remaining panels to continue matching them all to the very first panel.
