The bed skirt can add the decoration of the bedroom, hide the ugly box spring mattress, or even better, hide the old box you hide under the bed.
With many patterns and designs, the right bed skirt will add style to your room.
The advantage of the elastic bed skirt is that it can be worn and taken off easily (
Don\'t drag heavy mattresses)
They stay in place better than traditional style bed skirts and are easier to craft.
Measure the distance from the floor to the top edge of the box spring using a tape measure to determine the \"drop\" or height of the skirt.
Measure the circumference of the bed by running a tape measure around the entire bed.
This will determine how long it will take for your fabric to cover the entire perimeter of the bed.
Add 3 inch to the number you measured.
This extra material will be used to create a pocket for elasticity.
Cut the fabric to a certain height.
Cut the necessary amount of debris at the equal perimeter plus 4 inch. These four extra inches will give you some extra sewing fabric.
If you want to make a wrinkled bed skirt, multiply the circumference by two.
To achieve the appearance of the folds, it takes twice as much fabric.
Sew the fabric together until you have a very long piece of fabric.
Fold the top of the fabric on the back to create a pocket for elastic passage.
The length of the seam at the bottom of the fold.
In this pocket you can wear the elastic band in.
Make your elasticity three or 4 inch longer than the length of the bed. Use . 5-to . 75-inch elastic.
Thin elasticity can be pulled down from the bed by the weight of the fabric.
Feed elasticity all the way through the pockets you create with a safety pin.
Sew the ends of the elastic band together.
Place the skirt on the box spring to check if it fits.
If it doesn\'t look tight enough, cut off more elasticity and stitch the ends together again for a tighter fit.
Don\'t sew your pocket until you want the fit.
Sew your pocket.
Fold the fabric in half, facing the Inside Outside, and sew the ends of the fabric together.
This will ensure that the completed seams are located on the inside of the bed skirt below, which cannot be seen there.
Align your finished skirt around the box spring.
