DIY: alter your own curtains, I took my expensive curtains from Restoration Hardware apart and resewed the seam

I made it wider because I could hardly move my curtains on the rod. I bought the curtain & the rod from RH, it was supposed to fit, I loved the rod and it was spendy so I figured rather then try to find a new one, Ill just sew them, I was leery because I am NOT a seamstress, but needless to say it was easier then I thought it would be and I was happy with the result! :D

Sorry about the not so great pictures (for some weird reason my camera showed a little bit of lavender in them:( I just used my phone because I didn't have my camera right then and I was trying to get them done.

* First off measure and mark how much wider you want the seam
Then fold it over and iron along the marks ( I didn't pin it, but if your worried about it not being straight pin it)
