I resorted to buying a new bed skirt, at Bed Bath and Beyond.

Sounds frustrating - just like altering clothes can be! ( which I almost never do....)

Good luck and I hope your solution works!

I am so ticked off! Bought a whole bed ensemble a while ago, lost receipt. While changing the sheets today, I decided to strip the duvet cover, pillow shams, and bed skirt and threw them in the wash. The cotton used for the attaching the bed skirt shrunk a good 12 inches and would not fit the width or length of the box spring.


I have been thinking of taking the bed skirt off of the shrunken cotton, then attaching it to a old polyester cotton sheet, great idea but with no one to help me, lift the mattress back on the box frame, it sucks the the whole bed skirt under, so no matter how you try to pull the fabric, it will not budge! I wonder if just sewed elastic to each corner of the bedskirt, but don't attach it to anything. Would it would stay in place? That is my challenge for tomorrow!
