This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Bespoke Curtains & Blinds

Blind and curtain edits sized to fit the Bespoke Build Set windows. Includes centered and diagonal meshes and tons of recolors if you want them.

All of the recolors have a color prefix so if you download more than one color palette unzip them into the same folder and they'll be sorted for you in game. (Patterns and neutrals to the left and the other colors grouped to the right.)

Catalog Sort: Deco/Curtains
2 Subsets (There's a pewter, brass & gold curtain rod that uses Aquilegia's default texture.)

Everything requires the Bespoke Curtain master file.

Four Lengths
  • Kitchen: A short curtain sized to hit the sill and not drag on the counter. | Price 100-106
  • Short
  • Regular
  • Tall
Five Styles
  • Blinds | Price 81-92 | Polys 144-204
  • Single Curtain | Price 171-176 | Polys 1018
  • Double Curtain | Price 181-186 | Polys 1018
  • Modest Double Curtain |Price 189-194 | Polys 1214
  • Triple Curtain | Price 197-199| Polys 1054
Tiny file recolors in 5 palettesAnd a few prints
ISSUES: The mapping/pattern repeat on the valance (modest style) is poor. For my recolors I deliberately chose patterns that minimized this. Skip the patterns or the modest curtains if your tolerance for this sort of thing is low.


Polygon Counts:
Blinds 144-204
Curtains 1018-1214

HW, you never cease to amaze me. These are lovely curtains; I love hoe they fit the windows so nicely. Now I am wondering what more Bespoke you have up your sleeve. Deb
