A beautiful corner black bed skirt conceals the bottom of the bed and allows the skirt to fit around the foot plate poles. Making a corner skirt bed skirt is a good project for a beginner seamstress because all seams are straight and easy to sew. Select a baseboard fabric that covers well and works with the decoration of your bedroom. Remove the mattress, and keep it in reserve. Place a flat sheet on the spring mattress. Align the top edge of the blade with the top edge of the spring box. The sheet should fall evenly on each side and the bottom of the bed. Measure the length of the sides of the bed, and add four inches.
Black bed skirt, measure from the floor to the top edge of the spring mattress, and add four inches. Cut two pieces of fabric of this size. Measure the length of the foot of the bed, and add four inches. Cut a piece of cloth for this length and measure the height. Turn the edges of a cloth panel on the back a quarter of an inch, and iron. Turn the lid to the back, and iron. Sew a seam hem along the 1/4 inch fold. Repeat this procedure for all panels. Turn the bottom sewn edge to the back of an inch, and sew with a hem stitch. Repeat this procedure for the two remaining panels.
Side panel position centers on the spring side of the box. Pull the panel along the top of the spring box until the hem is half an inch off the floor. Pin the panel. Repeat this procedure until the side is fixed on the flat sheet on top of the box springs. The black bed skirt should wrap the corners of the head and foot board by one inch. Repeat for the second side. Attach the last skirt foot board, and overlap the side corners by one inch. Remove the sheet from the bed, and sew the skirts to the sheet using your pins as a guide. Your seams should be approximately two inches from the edge of the top corner of the box spring.
