In the event that you want to utilize a king-sized duvet cover on a queen-sized comforter, you probably should change the duvet to suit the comforter rather than utilizing it without changes. Changing the duvet is as basic as sewing around the edges on three sides to just marginally widen and lengthen it to exceed the comforter. You would prefer not to regulate the duvet to be as big as the comforter since it would be tight.
- Measuring tape
- Straight pins
- Matching thread
- Sewing machine
- Gauge how wide and long the queen-sized comforter is. The majority of comforters are 86 inches by 94 inches, yet some changes exist due to the style or fill of the comforter.
- Gauge how wide the king-sized duvet is. Deduct the duvet by its width. Halve the measurement and then deduct 1 inch from that measurement to discover the amount to be trimmed in every side. For instance, if the king-sized duvet is 104 inches in width and the comforter is 86 inches in width, deduct 86 from 104 to be 18. Halve 18 to get 9 inches, then deduct 1 to get 8 inches.
- Turn the duvet wrong side out. Gauge in the assigned inches from every side of the duvet at the top and bottom and mark with a fabric marker. In the event that your duvet has a zipper closer, pull the zipper closed midway and therefore you need not deduct the zipper pull while altering the duvet.
- Sew a straight row of stitches on both sides of the duvet, from the mark on the top edge to that on the bottom edge.
- Gauge how long the king-sized duvet is and then deduct the queen-sized duvet by length. Halve it and then deduct 1 to discover the length to be trimmed off. For instance, if you’re king-sized duvet is 98 inches and your comforter is 94, 1 inch shall be trimmed off.
- Gauge the length to be trimmed off and mark it on both sides close to the top of the duvet. You would prefer not to trim from the bottom since it has the opening and closures.
- From mark to mark sew a straight line of stitches across the duvet.
- Slide the comforter inside the duvet to ensure it suits. Trim the sides and top edge of the duvet to 1/2 inch far from the stitching rows. Complete the crude edges inside the duvet with a zig-zag stitch.
- Turn the duvet right side out, slide the comforter in and toss it on your bed.
