How to shorten a Roman Shade

To adjust the length of a Roman Shade:

  • Lay shade stretched out on a flat surface.
  • Untie cords from the bottom rings on the back of the shade.
  • Measure what it is you want the length to be. Add 4 inches to that (i.e., desired length is 40", plus 4" = 44").
  • Cut along the bottom of the tape.
  • Fold the blind up twice, or until it reaches the desired length.
  • Use hot glue to seal the hem. (Note: if you do not have hot glue, use clear adhesive, such as liquid nails or a wood glue)
  • Tie the strings (the ones that hang down the back of the blind) to the little rings.
