You can listen to this episode here: Custom Bed Skirts Bed skirts, dust skirts, dust ruffles or bed valances... whatever you call them, only workrooms know how much work goes into custom bedding.

They can be gathered, flat or pleated.

Unlined, lined or lined and interlined.

It’s important to know the bed. Before you start...

  1. Is it a mattress and box spring on a basic bed frame?

  2. Does it have a headboard and footboard?

  3. Will the skirt fall in front of, or behind the side rails?

  4. Are there any obstructions that will block the skirt?

Measuring the Bed

Measure the length from the headboard, or top of the box spring, to the other end at the foot of the bed.

Measure the width of the box spring.
