Gusseted shoulder covers

jyang949's picture

I need to make dust covers for clothes that hang in the closet for long periods. Two-piece covers don't really accommodate padded shoulders. Can you provide instructions for gusseted covers?

I'm not trying for anything fancy—the covers will be made from old sheets!—just something to keep dust from collecting on the shoulders.

Dust Covers for Clothing (post #37860, reply #1 of 1)

Use the old sheets and make boxed ends by centering the seam and sewing across each end the depth needed to make the top wide enough to accommodate the clothing.

This graphic/tutorial is for a tote bag, but the method is basically the same:  http://craftapple.wordpress.com/2007/09/01/sewing-tip-squarely-boxing-those-corners/
