Pictures do wonders in knowing what you are trying to do. Take a wide angle shot from about 6-8 feet away from the window (use extra lighting if room is dark, along with flash). Once posted with pic, better answers can be given.

My vinyl window supplier will make a casement replacement window for a doublehung opening.
Check your local supplier.
