  • Cut the shower curtain to correct length
  • Add blanket binding with Sealah Tape

Tips for Sewing Duvet Cover

  • Use drapery led free bead weight to measure the bed for a duvet cover, the bead weight drapes over the bed like fabric so you can determine the correct measurement for the side drop.
  • Ask if the pattern repeat on your fabric is a full drop or a half drop repeat.  Half Drop repeats require more fabric when making a duvet cover.
  • Use Duvet Snaps in the corners and on the sides of your duvet to keep it in place.
