Saturday morning curtain confusion. I think I've bought them too wide, will it matter?

Drat!

I'm all confused over whether the widths are per pair or per curtain and my head is minced with it all.

If i have ordered them too wide, will it look ridiculous?

TIA

You'll just have lots of gathers smile

better than too narrow smile

oh well, will wait and see what arrives.

should have asked MIL. not that i'll admit that to her.

I think width it per pair, but you want them to be wider than the window so you still have gathers when they are drawn.

I still need to check with my mum when I buy curtains - so complicated!

so i've bought 165cm x 228cm (66"x90")

do i get 2 curtains that are 165 wide each in a pack?

What nevergoogle said. I've bought too narrow before, very frustrating.

so i gave the best answer to my own question, excellent.
today might work out after all! grin

Curtains can never be too wide IMO

The wider the better! They look so much better when they look 'full'

nevergoogle Sat 13-Apr-13 09:25:44

ok, so i should just forget about it for now as they'll probably be fine.
have had curtain mania since last night when MIL offered to buy some curtains. ridiculous.
