I was wondering if anyone had an idea on how to make a bedskirt for a king size bed.

When I made one years ago I used a single sheet cut to size then sewed on a gathered skirt around the edge, of fabric I purchased, which measured twice the perimeter of the bed and the width, of course, was from just above the base height and to the the floor. But you could just make a wide - very gathered ruffle of fabric, that has elastic along both sides, which would hold it in place, but you would need to make it perhaps two and a half times the perimeter for a good ruffled effect.

How would one go about making a bed ruffle for a king sized bed? I know to make a king size duvet, you would use 2 king sized sheets.
