Have you ever searched the world over to find the perfect comforter for your bedroom only to bring it home and discover it’s too short?
I’m not sure if the problem is the big, pillow top mattresses we have these days or the comforter people trying to save on fabric?
Either way, we tend to make do with the front side of the bed looking beautiful while the back side is hiked up showing the sheets.
Comforters are, of course, sewn together, usually with decorative stitching holding all the comfy layers in place. Taking it apart to add anything to lengthen it would be a nightmare.
For several of my clients, I’ve found the answer is to add a 6″ gathered ruffle, or a flat flange depending on their preference, to the outer edge of the comforter. Ultimately, how we attach this ruffle depends on how the comforter is made.
Today’s solution also involves a ruffle that’s a bit different because this ruffle is HUGE!
