I know there are much more important things to be worrying about, but I just need a little advice :)

Okay, who has sewed curtains before? I need some help! I made some curtains for Bryn's room but they didn't turn out how I was envisioning them. I read somewhere that you should sew your curtains so that they touch the floor... so they don't look like "floods". I tried doing that, but now they kind of lay funny and I think maybe it's because they're a little bit too long? Should I make them just a little bit shorter, like barely above the floor?? Also, they looked kind of wide, so I tried making little "belts" (for lack of the proper term) to try to tame them a little bit. I haven't finished the "belts" yet because when I pinned them up I thought they looked dorky. And I'm not sure about the color. Maybe I should just forget about the belts and take 6-8 inches off the width of each curtain, so they're not so full. And then I'd have to make the curtain rod not as wide. Or maybe I should just leave the curtains as they are?? So please tell me your opinion, should I make them shorter or leave the length? And should I leave the "belts", cut off 6-8 inches off the sides, or just leave them? I'm kind of leaning towards no belts, but I don't know.
