|How can I make a "stretch" bedskirt -one that I can slip over the mattress without having to move the mattress?||

I suppose you could make a skirt attached to elastic(enough to go all the way around the bed), or you could use velcro(on two long sides and foot of bed), maybe.

|Diane, Maybe what I did might help you. I have a king size waterbed & wanted a bedskirt. So you know the ones that under a mattress won't work. I measured the length I wanted & around the sides & foot board. I trippled the measurements as I wanted it real full gathers. I bought some sherring tape, sewed that to the top of the skirt ( after I made the skirt ), then put stickyback velcro on the side of the bed & foot board. Sewed the soft side of sew on velcro onto the underside of the top of the bedskirt & it has worked like a charm. So easy to take off & wash & put back on. I have heard of people doing this onto their box spring on a regular bed also. Hope this helps you or at least gives you an idea.||
