How to Determine Rod Pocket Size
When specifying your rod pocket size, please refer to our chart and order accordingly.
Note: Interlined rod pocket draperies should be made with the pocket size ½" larger than normal to allow for extra take up when gathered onto the rod.
Rod Pocket Chart
3/8" Rod = Order 1" Pocket
3/4" Rod = Order 1.5" Pocket
5/8" Rod = Order 2" Pocket
1-3/8" Rod = Order 3" Pocket
2" Rod = Order 4" Pocket
2-1/4" - 2-1/2" Rod = Order 4.5" Pocket
3" Rod = Order 5.5" Pocket
Measure the Area You Wish to Cover
Rod Face - Measure the width of your drapery rod, not including finials
Coverage Area - Measure the width of the area you want to cover. If ordering pleated drapery, consider adding 4" - 6" on either side of your opening to maximize natural light and provide the best finished look.
Note: We have made allowances for fullness, returns and overlaps as needed to ensure a beautiful finished look.
If ordering drapery that does not need to close (stationary), consider ordering a drapery with less coverage.
How to Measure Length for Rod Pocket Drapes
Measure for required length from the top of the rod to the floor, referring to the measuring diagram on this page.
Important: When specifying your drapery length, be sure to allow for rod pocket take up. Please refer to our chart and add the appropriate take-up amount to your ordered length.
1" Pocket = No Take Up
1.5" Pocket = 0.5" Take Up
2" Pocket = 0.5" Take Up
3" Pocket = 1" Take Up
4" Pocket = 1.5" Take Up
4.5" Pocket = 1.5" Take Up
5.5" Pocket = 2" Take Up
Add Tie Back(s)
Tie backs are made 3" wide.
Tie back length is made according to the width of drapery ordered.
A hook pin set will be included in the seam 1" from the end of each tie back.
Simple and sophisticated, rod pocket drapes add beauty and style to any room. Finished with a rod pocket casing to accommodate your decorative drapery pole, rod pocket drapes are timeless. Rod pocket drapes have an absence of pleats, which allows for greater coverage with less material. Choose from a variety of fabrics to coordinate your drapes with your decor!
- Considerations when ordering custom rod pocket drapes:
- Rod Pocket Size: It is important to know what size rod you will use in installation. Your rod diameter will determine what size pocket to order.
- Take-Up Measurement: When rod pocket drapery is installed on a rod, a certain length of the drapery will "take up" as you gather it onto the rod.
Drapery hardware not included.
- Fabric Samples:
Because of variations from one computer screen to another, it's difficult to precisely match fabric color on our website. We suggest that you purchase fabric samples if color matching is important to your individual buying decision. To order fabric samples, click the "Sample" button on the top menu while viewing the fabric of your choice in our Fabric Selection Tool. From there you will be able to cart your sample. You may also purchase fabrics by the yard by clicking the "Order" button on the top menu.
- Customer's Own Material:
Outdoor Drapes can create custom products using fabric you already own! Simply choose Customer Fabric (COMFAB) as your fabric selection. (COMFAB is usually listed first in our Fabric Gallery.) There is a one-time (per order), non-refundable $25.00 charge for the handling of your material. Please read our COM Procedures for more information.
- Drapery Lengths:
Graze Length: The drapery panel hangs just at the floor.
Trouser Length: Add 1"-3" to your Drapery Length so that the panel spills slightly onto the floor. Trouser is not recommended for functional drapery panels.
Puddle Length: Add 4"-12" to your Drapery Length so that the panel "puddles" on the floor. Puddling is not recommended for functional drapery panels.
- Drapery Weights:
Vinyl-covered, lead-free drapery weights are used in the bottom of our drapery hems to provide control of drapery panel corners after installation. Drapery panels have a better hanging quality when weighted at the bottom corners.
