How Do You Make The Easiest Bedskirt Ever?
This article explains an easy, no-sew combination bedskirt/bottom sheet bedding solution for allergy sufferers, asthmatics, people with mobility problems and anyone who doesn’t want to fuss at bedmaking time. Place one queen size flat sheet (90″ x 102″) crosswise over a full size mattress (54″ x 75″, 8″ thick, 23″ drop to the floor). The header of the flat sheet should hang on the most visible side of the bed because it is generally the more attractive edge. With 102″ of flat sheet placed over 54″ of mattress, there are 48″ remaining to hang as the bed skirt over the sides of the bed (24″ per side). If desired, the bottom edge of the flat sheet could be hemmed (sewn, pinned, taped) so that none of the flat sheet touches the floor. Because the 90″ width of the queen sheet exceeds the 75″ length of the mattress, there are some 15″ left over to tuck in at the top and/or foot of the mattress. Although not a lot, it manages to be enough for the flat sheet to remain secure for an entire week
