Can't decide on a length...

I finally had some time to get a visual on how the French Gray Buffalo Check will look. Ooooh me likey!! But I'm still not sure of the length.

Sorry about all the weird lighting. It's been overcast and gloomy. An icky-poo-poo kind of day.

Do I want them to the bottom wood trim like most standard curtains? Or will they look too squatty because the windows are wide but not tall. OR do I want them longer?? Making the windows look taller since the ceiling is vaulted.
Heck, I don't know!!

So what do YOU think?? I'm pretty sure I bought enough fabric to make them as long as the ones I made previously.

About 8" past the wood trim.

Here I pinned them up to the wood trim....

Maybe a happy medium would be 4" longer than the wood trim.

Happy Tuesday, all!

Ooh! These are going to look so pretty. I really like the last picture, up near the wood trim. That one is my favorite. :-)

I like the length of your previous curtains a lot!

Hee hee!! Thanks so much, ladies! You are the best and I truly appreciate your input. ♥
But I think I am going to pull a Goldilocks.
8" below the trim is too long. Right at the trim is too short. But 4" below the trim is just right. ((giggle))
Now I need to psych myself up into sewing them. I just don't want to make any measuring/cutting mistakes and lose some of my fabric. Eeek!!!
Measure twice. Cut once. ;> )

Wish I could sew. I use fabric adhesive tape! Haha I have sown before but find this to be easier. My hubby helps me with the measurements cause I mess 'em up every time! Lol
Excited to see your new curtains!
