altering fitted sheets
I have two sets of sheets that I love *but* the bottom sheet of each set is huge. My mattress is 12" deep. It is a standard king-size bed.
If I put the "dart"(that is what I'm calling the corner stitching, for lack of a better term) on the upper right corner and pull the sheet taut, the dart on the lower right corner is about 6" off the bed. NOTE that is not pulling diagonally but straight down one side. Same holds true from side to side.
I like/prefer/need to sleep on a sheet that is flat and unwrinkled. I can tuck all the extra under the mattress, but it doesn't stay long, and it really doesn't fit since only one "dart" will be in the proper place.
Does anyone know of a way to alter the sheet so that it will fit properly?
