    LOVED this video!
    Donna Cash does an excellent job of breaking it all down in an incredible step-by-step tutorial for making beautiful, tailored bedskirts.

    In fact, I’ve made several bedskirts since viewing this video series. And I’ve found that the techniques Donna uses are also applicable to other styles of bedskirts as well- tailored, gathered and box pleat.
    This video will easily take your bedskirts to the next level.

    I can’t wait for the next video!
