How to Make Pottery Barn Like Linen Curtains!

I wanted to add curtains to help soften the lines of the bamboo blinds in my Ladies Lounge and to help break up the colors so it wasn’t one big wall of brown. The only issue is that there are 7 windows in this room, so I knew buying curtains was going to be a pretty big expense. Especially when I decided I liked the look of Pottery Barn’s Emery Linen Drape. 7 panels of those would have cost $973! If I had chosen to go down the store bought path, I would have also had an issue with the width of the panels. The windows are only 30” wide, and I didn’t want them to be overwhelmed by 2 -54” panels framing out each window.
I went to Joann’s and took a look at all the linens they had and found something that is very similar-Sew Classics Linen. Best part was my total cost was under $150!

    Thanks @Allie Wachter, I love the way you made such attractive curtains, making your room look so warm and inviting. Also you've given me the inspiration for my own "Wall-of-Windows"! I've been so wanting to hang panels, not so much to close, but just some fabric to add softness to the Hunter Douglas 'honeycomb shades' that we have in our living & dining rooms, and far too many panels to purchase on my meager budget. I do have a question: how did you handle the corners, when two curtains have to share that space where one window leaves only a small amount of wall?

      @Dorothy Taylor I'm so glad to hear that you're going to try making your own curtains, they can be so expensive when they are store bought! Regarding how the curtains were hung in the corners, I didn't change the width of the fabric for those panels. When hanging the curtain rod, I used adjustable rods that I could extend, I also placed the bracket right above the outer line of the window (not the molding).
