Tried this in another forum but this seems to have more action.
I purchased some very fine kingsize fitted sheets for a steal. I want to cut them down to regular / double size. I know how to do this by corners seams, however I notice that most of the sheets I buy these days have a diagnal seam across the end and the bottom of sheets. I am wondering the purpose of making fitted sheets this way and if it is better than corner seams, how would I make fitted sheets that way.

I think they do the diagonal seam b/c there is less strain on it and less likely to tear out. I would just take a sheet I have and make a pattern off it. You said your sheets you have are fitted, perhaps just unpick one corner and see how they put it together to get a template for your new sizing.
