How about Cafe' Curtains http://www.terrysfabrics.co.uk/cat/ready-made-curtains/cafe/
I remember someone fitting them to a Puck, very nice you can see out over the top, but
cannot be seen as well from outside. As used by the best curtain twitchers ask Randa.

Just don't ask me to pop in to get you some before Christmas! Terry's are a local treasure sort of place.

No not us. We don't have a curtain or net in the house or the caravan. Total exhibitionists us
We rely on the "pull down" fly screens. Great for looking out through but, with the lights off, not so good for looking back through (we think )

No, first you need to get a life. Nearly eleven o'clock at night and you've got nothing better to think of than net curtains. Are there no pubs in your village/town? I hear they now have Horlicks on tap for the non alcoholics.

Time is 1 hour different here so 10.00 not 11.00 and it was blowing a gale and pouring down with rain outside so I was getting a reasonable wobble on at home

we changed the pop elastic this year, and used the excess to renew the net retaining elastic

I find the nets quite handy to have, when the passers by keep staring, bit off putting when trying to read, sir decided to stare back but that made matters worse hence the nets drawn on the most direct staring window

The elastic cord that holds my net curtains in place is falling apart I thought I might replace it.

it was warm in eriba
the diameter is 4mm measured with verniers
the front window elastic measurement 1metre70
the side window lounge " " " 1 metre 40
other side window " " " 1 metre 40
Back window " " " 1metre 60
all measurements include loops but didn't think to unknot there is a slight red flick in the elastic but not something that shows
i hook on the piece that's closest to screws
the front window is slightly stretched so a few extra centimetres added on wont hurt approx. 6metres
have a look at quillow in craft album to see if elastic tight enough for you, although stars pulling down not a very good photo
i cannot remember how much for the pop
