Pinched pleat drapery with goblet pleats is a style of drapery made from pinched pleats. When hung, the drapery forms a shape called a “goblet” or “Goblet”. This design enhances draperies and gives them a modern look. The best way to make pleated styles is with decorative rods that can be used for pin hooks. You mount the pin hook to the track and slide it into the rod loop. This allows drapery to be opened and closed.

The place where the goblet pleated drapery is to hang, you can put a ladder next to it.
Insert a pinhook with the pointed upward end to determine the height of your hanging drapery. You press the pinhook into the drapery’s gathered fabric. The pin hook should be at least 2 inches below the top edge. However, it’s a good idea for one pin hook to be inserted and placed on the rod loop of the drapery rod. Keep the bulk of your drapery in place so that the pin hook does not tear it.
Ask an observer if you are unsure if the line between the pin hook and the drapery’s bottom is touching the ground. The drape should hang free of the floor by being at least an inch above it.
Take the drapery off the rod and place all the pin hooks at the right height. Hang the pin hooks at the correct height and rehang the drapery, starting from the sides. If you have too many drapery loops, take them out.
Ask someone to observe if the seam between the pin hooks and the bottom of your drapery touches the floor.

Two fingers are enough to press down on the top of your first goblet. Fill the goblet until it is filled with stuffing. Continue this process with every goblet.
Grab your buckram and break it into pieces. Find the center of each pleat, and then pinch the material between your thumb and forefinger. To help drapery pull together properly, make a vertical fold. To create more pleating, pinch the drape below the goblet.
You can train your pleats by hanging new draperies. Create each pleat as you would like them to appear when they are fully open. Tape the drapes open with a paper band. Leave the drape unattended for three days to allow the pleats time to settle in the same position every time you open them.
