How to do it

  1.  The first thing you need to do is to pick up a suitable color and fabric for your bed skirt.
  2. Remove the mattress from the bed and put into another room.
  3. The cheapest way to make the non-visible part of the bed skirt is to use a piece of fabric that you do not use anymore. If you do not have one, buy it from a local store in your area.
  4. Take the piece of fabric and put it in place making sure that the sides of the fabric touch the sides of the box spring. Start folding the piece of fabric from the bottom and make sure you keep the same width of the fold. In addition, the space between each fold should be the same.
  5. Make ordered creases by taking the piece of fabric to the ironing board.
  6. Go to a local store and achieve the material for the bed skirt. Keep in mind the dimensions of the two sides of the bed and buy more material than necessary.
  7. Before placing the flat piece of fabric and the material for the bed skirt together, you have to know that every part of material needs a hem at the bottom.
  8. Pin the two materials together before taking them to the sewing machine. This way you will get a professional finish for your bed skirt.
  9. Take the mattress and put it in place. Place the bed skirt on the top of the mattress and that was all!
