Would it be better to buy readymade curtains and just add small tape ,and shorten to size? So costly to have made!

where have you looked o have them made??   i sew for a living (mainly curtains blinds etc) and i after seeing many ready made one i would tread carefully as usually the quality is shockingly poor, not to say you can't get good quality ready mades, but you are then paying made to measure prices so could save yourself alot of hassle.  

try getting some quotes of independant curtain makers who work form home, i have done boats and a camper and have done them for a reasonable price.  if you are handy enough to alter curtains (which can be harder work than making from scratch) then why not make them from scratch yourself??

Hi there, I brought my vw camper curtains in the argos sale - 3 a pair, and shortened them! They were fully lined and it was fairly easy to measure up and sew. Ive had sooo many compliments as they are so unique and id not used a sewing machine for 22 years!! 3 days, 10 curtains, 7 tie backs, 3 broken needles and I couldnt have been happier!!!

plus have enough spare material for matching cushion covers, thermowrap cover and anything else I might think of!!

we looked into getting a set made for our TT ,in the end it was far cheaper to buy the mrs a sewing machine and the material and make our own.First single thickness then another layer was added to cut the site lights down to an exceptable level
I fail to see how they are so expensive
now shes knocked up some mattress covers for this season

Hi there, just thought I would add to this, I have not used a sewing machine since school 17 years ago and I have just made some lovely new blackout lined curtains for my Talbot Camper van!! I did a trial run with some cheap fabric and the final versions I am very happy with!! I would say go for it and make them yourself!!

As for above. Bought material in Ikea and used old ones as pattern. Also bought cheap throws in Ikea and with left over curtain material sewed this to throw to make cover for back set in our VW trooper. With other throw cut it in half and put over the driver and passenger seat, tied at back. Also made 2 cushion covers!!Very co-ordinated now!!
