Realistic Curtain

Post by robsteady » Thu Mar 23, 2017 6:20 pm

Can someone make a tutorial how to make a realistic curtain with hem (seams) on all four sides?

This tutorial from Lori Griffiths was already helpful, but the hem is only on one side:

To hem the edges, create two internal lines. If you want the hem to be 5mm, for example, place one internal line 5mm from edge and the other 10mm from edge.

Set the Fold Angle on the line closest to the edge to 0. Sew the other internal line to the edge. The hem will fold on the first one and sew on the second.

If you don't want the sharp fold, increase or eliminate the Fold Angle after simulating.

That should work for any hem on any edge.
