Home Decor Sewing – The Well Dressed Bed

Standard

A Pleated Bedskirt

pleated bed skirt and coverlet

 I made the quilted twin-sized coverlet several years ago; I had additional fabric for a bedskirt, but never got around to making it.   I don’t much care for the ruffled look of most bedskirts preferring the softly tailored look of simple pleating.

I had everything I needed to complete this project on hand, which was very nice, because it was cold and gray yesterday and I really didn’t want to go out.  I  just happened to have a roll of drapery lining which I used for adding structure to the skirt along with providing a nice finished look on the underside.  I think it looks great and hides the storage boxes under the bed very nicely indeed.
