Reference Guide to Sizing

 

Basic Bed Linen Information

Sizes below refer to bedding staple sizes meaning the items your bedding pieces will cover.

 

Sheet sizes vary by designer and manufacturer. Flat sheets will vary by length & width and fitted sheets by depth. Most fitted sheets will fit mattresses up to 14 inch depth and extra deep fitted sheets will fit 16-18 inch or greater depth depending on manufacturer.

 

Pillowcases are sized 2-4 inches longer than the actual pillow size to give ample cover over the  end of your pillows.

 

 Bed Pillow Size  Measurement *
 Standard  20 x 26 in. (51 x 66 cm)
 Queen  20 x 30 in. (51 x 76 cm)
 King  20 x 36 in. (51 x 91 cm)
 European  26 x 26 in. (66 x 66 cm)

 * Same as pillow sham sizes not including ruffles or flanged edges.

 

 Bed Mattress Size  Measurement *
 Twin  39 x 75 in. (99 x 190 cm)
 Twin Extra Long  39 x 80 in. (99 x 203 cm)
 Full or Double  54 x 75 in. (137 x 190 cm)
 Queen  60 x 80 in. (152 x 203 cm)

Shams are almost always manufactured in Standard, King and European, sized the same as Bed Pillows (see above). We often received requests for Queen size shams but almost all manufactured bedding is sized for use of the Standard sham for both the Standard and Queen size bed pillows.

 

Fabric in Sheets

Buying fabric by the yard in most designer lines is very expensive. Consider using sheets or pillowcases for your sewing needs. Manufacturer estimated equivalents are listed below:

 

 Bedding Size  Yardage
 Twin Sheet  4 yards
 Full Sheet  5 yards
 Queen Sheet  6 yards
 King Sheet  7 yards
 Standard Pillowcase  2/3 yard
 King Pillowcase  1 yard

 

If you buy a twin sheet for $20.00, your cost  per yard is only $5.00. Designer fabrics, such as Ralph Lauren can cost between $35-75/yard or more. You've saved up to $120 or more for the same fabric, just not off the bolt!

Fabric in Bedskirts

Many do not consider the fabric in bedskirts for use in making custom bedding.  Although most bedskirts  have  only a 14 " drop, ruffled skirts are gathered using 2 to 3 times the amount of fabric giving you plenty of fabric to make cording, ruffles or trim for pillows, drapes, valances or  shams, and  pieced and/or quilted shams, pillows, quilts, etc. Crib bedskirts normally  have a 13" drop.

 

 Bedding Size  Yardage *
 Crib - 28" x  52" -  Ruffled Bedskirt  3/8+ yard  x  7-11 yards
 Twin - 39" x  75" - Ruffled Bedskirt  3/8+ yard  x  10-15  yards
           -  Box or Tailored Bedskirt                      x   5-1/4  yards
 Full  -  54 "x  75" - Ruffled Bedskirt  3/8+ yard  x  11-17  yards
          -  Box or Tailored Bedskirt                      x   5-2/3  yards
 Queen  -  60" x  80"  -  Ruffled Bedskirt  3/8+ yard  x  12-18  yards
                -  Box or Tailored Bedskirt                      x   6  yards
 King  - 78" x  80" - Ruffled Bedskirt  3/8+ yard  x  13-20  yards
           -  Box or Tailored Bedskirt                      x   6-1/ 2 yards

 *  3/8 yd = 12in. - actual length is normally 14-15  in. 

    Calvin Klein Bedskirts are normally 18 in. long = 1/2 yd.
