English translation:finished hems
Explanation:
The curtains are designed to be gauzy on the back, with print borders and *finished hems*

confeccionado has the general meaning of *tailored*, in the case of hems, this would mean: finished (i.e., made so they don't show)

From the Oxford Superlex: bajo: 2 a (de una falda, un vestido) hem;

From the Oxford Superlex, cenefa: a (en ropa, sábanas) border
