Casement Curtains, Rod Pocket, Panel Curtains, Pole Top Curtains

This style of curtain has many names. basically the casement curtain is best described as the top forms a pocket (or casement) that the fabric is then threaded onto a pole or rod.

The fabric is sometimes difficult to pull across, so is often left in place and draped back to the sides of the windows and held in place with tie backs or hold backs.

An elegant window treatment, with soft belowing top, tight middle and flowing puddling bottom.

Multiple poufs can be made but remember to keep them in proportion to the window size.

Casement Curtains

Casement curtains work well on windows that aren’t opened and closed frequently.

They are a good form of decorative curtain, or a curtain that is used just to add color and texture to a room and is not required to be functional.
