Wondering where to start looking (haven't even googled yet cause I know I'll need some help even if I find what I'm looking for) for patterns to replace the ones in the car now. They are the originals and have shrunk a bit in the sun over the years so a couple of them no longer fit so I can't just take them off and copy them. I know people make new curtains all the time - so I don't want to reinvent the wheel... but I'd greatly appreciate any tips, advice, etc before I start


Thanks so much!

I didn't have original drapes on my hearse so I had to measure the windows and make new drapes from scratch.

So after lots if looking around, it seems my best bet is to use my current curtains as my pattern, but measure my windows to make up for the shrinkage... Sooooo... That will be an up coming project this summer!!! Yay!!
