We bought these curtains not allowing for the height of the rod being placed 6" above the window. The fabric was perfect though so I did the only thing I could think of...add a little umph with a little length!
I took about 15" of material by the width of the curtain and sewed it directly on top of the curtains bottom edge. I made sure not to go over board on making it permanent. With something like this I figure that when we change the decor...we can easily change them yet again!!!
