    Take a fitted Sheet and just cover box spring as you would cover the mattress done and done.

    I use a fitted sheet to cover box spring. Perfect size and fit. I have seen skirt attached to velcro and added between box spring and mattress which can be addrd or removed without moving mattress. Good luck

    If your bed skirt is elasticized on one side, just make a casing on the other side and run elastic through it. If your bed skirt has a hem, that can be the casing. If it is not wide enough to lose width to make a casing, add one made from another length of fabric (it won't show so mismatches won't matter.) Hope this helps!

    Make a hem along the edge of the sheet and thread a long strip of elastic through it, don’t cut it 7 til you try it andnd Make sure it’s loose enough to slide over the box springs and tight enough so it will stay on!
