HOW TO SEW A BED SKIRT FOR A POSTER BED
I’m showing you how to sew a bed skirt for a poster bed.
Do you want to know how to sew a bed skirt for a poster bed? If you purchase bed skirt from the store, I’m certain that it won’t fit your bed properly. You will learn how to make a perfectly fitting bed skirt for your bed – no matter what size it is. My bed is a U.S. King size but you can follow along with me to get the proper measurements for your bed. Companies that make bed skirts usually sew them as one piece but I’m making this bed skirt in three separate pieces. That’s my secret to a perfectly fitting bed skirt, dust ruffle or bed valance. No matter what you call it, it’s going to be gorgeous!

A typical bed skirt consists of one giant piece of decking fabric and finish fabric hanging off of its three sides. There are many problems with construction of this kind. First, the dust ruffle placement is on top of the box spring(s) and between the mattress. This creates shifting whenever you change the sheets or make the bed. The result is a messy looking bed on a daily basis. Typically, a purchased dust ruffle won’t give you the length you need to reach all the way to the floor – giving dust an opportunity to build up underneath the bed. It also won’t allow you store anything underneath the bed because everyone will see it. Last, if you run your bed skirt over the top of the box spring, you have to cover up the bed rails (that are usually decorative) with an ill-fitting piece of fabric.
