For a long time now I have been wanting REAL dust ruffle, not just the one that comes in a bed-in-a-bag to match the quilt or the 14" drop plain jane from Target or Wal-Mart. I want frilly, girly, shabby and chic! But HOLY CANOLI! Have you seen the prices of such?!?!? YIPES! No way was I going to spend so much on a bed skirt! Good thing I can sew a straight line!
I have been looking trying to decide on a fabric.
I was thinking burlap (like Ballard)...or sheer...or linen and so on....
Once the ruffles were full and frilly. I started pinning it to
the sheet along the edge of the bed. I worked from both ends the make sure it fit the length of the bed.
Once everything is pinned and you like how the skirt falls, start sewing. (Don't forget to reset your machine to the correct settings) Next I had to figure out how to get the skirt under the mattress. Mr. Whimsy and Master Whimsy were out of town camping. But with the help of my daughter, we strong willed Texas girls got it done!
Isn't the bed just dreamy? Of course, the boys didn't notice, but I know it's lovely!
Have a great weekend!
