Duvet was made to send to a new college student to commemorate the dorm experience. We knew that she’d be in a single size bed but did double knowing that wasn’t forever. This young woman’s soul and music are intertwined. When this jumped out while we were in Ikea it was a done deal.
The duvet itself is not difficult. It takes a basic sewing machine. If I had a serger it would be quick AND easy but I don’t. I start with a zig zag stitch and then go back and hit it with a straight stitch.
The comforter was standard 84″ by 84″. The duvet is 84″ by 86″. Longer based on xl dorm bed.
Closing the bottom there are a few opotions. Button holes and buttons; snap tape, which is what I used; tries to tone shoe lace bows or velcrow. I’ve made probably 7 duvets and have done it multiple ways. The snap tape I’d had for years and decided to use it for hers.
