Customer Questions and Answers
I have a split king bed. Do you happen to have pattern/measurements for a twin XL?
I'm sorry we only have dimensions listed for the sizes in the free download.
I see the yardage chart for the a full set of sheets pillow cases. Can you give me yardage for a king fitted only? Thank you.
To determine the yardage needed for only the King Size fitted sheet, subtract the inches needed for the flat sheet from the inches needed for both flat and fitted sheets, referencing the fabric layout on the download. For King size, the total inches are 550.5, of which, 238.5" is used for the flat sheet. If I've done my math correctly, this leaves 312" needed for the fitted sheet. Divide that by 36" to get 8 2/3 yards needed for the fitted sheet. Nine yards leaves you with about 12" to accommodate fabric shrinkage and squaring the fabric before cutting. If you are using FS Linen, you must order in full one-yard increments, so you could go with 9 yards, or 10 for good measure. I would tend to opt for the latter, but that's just me.

I've made 3 sets--one for us, one for our guest bed, another for my son and dtr-in-law. Every guest raves about them as cool in summer and warm in winter. Here's the snag: my husband has very rough feet and my dtr-in-law has restless feet--both wore holes in the bottom sheet. I 'appliqued' a 20" strip of quilting flannel across the holey area and we're in business again. I opted for flannel instead of more linen hoping it will wear better
This is a very nice pattern for making sheets. The only thing I have done differently is to use the standard flat fell seam like I use when I make jeans. I think it's the quilter in me coming out that I don't want any pressure on just threads from any tugging. I am sewing the second set now with the 4C22 linen so once those get on the bed we'll see if we like them better than the IL019 (which we love). I want to be able to wash one set without having to wait for it before re-making the bed. I have more linen in a third color, ready to pre wash then cut out for another set. The pattern is very easy to follow & I like that the fitted sheet accommodates a deep mattress.
The pattern and instructions were very simple and easy to follow. I ended up doing all French seams. I only made the fitted sheet.......that's what we needed replacing immediately! I will say that in my inexperience that I followed the pattern and instructions exactly, not taking in to consideration that we sleep on a Tempurpedic mattress. So, I ended up with a sheet that was very large. I ended up putting elastic all the way around and still have lots to tuck under. The Tempurpedic mattress is only about 8 inches wide, whereas the pattern allows for a much deeper mattress. I have found other sites that explain how to measure for different depths of mattresses. We love the feel and weight of the linen recommended. Can't wait to get the top sheet done!
I chose a midweight sale fabric for these sheets, and I actually paid less for the fabric than what I would have paid for linen sheets on Amazon, and I can actually preshrink the fabric, whereas all the linen sheets on Amazon say to wash in cool water and not to iron them. Awesome! The downside is that I had to wash and iron out fifteen yards of extra wide fabric. Also, it's a laborious process to crawl around on the kitchen floor, measuring and remeasuring and measuring again. My knees were bruised afterward. I also worried that the horizontal seams across the bed would be uncomfortable, but I don't even feel them. Instead, the seams make it easy to get the sheet onto the bed because I know which way is up, so to speak. The pockets on the fitted sheet are quite deep, and I love how it fits on the mattress. I love, love, love the finished result. The sheets are so comfy and I love how they feel. Despite what felt like a colossal effort bringing them into being, I'm already thinking of making another set in a different color, as well as a duvet cover. For reference, the fifteen yards of fabric yielded a set of queen size sheets, three pillowcases, and a sham from the remnants. And I'm glad I did it because I am really enjoying these sheets.
I bought the heavy weight linen for these after reading another review, thinking that we're rather hard on our sheets as well. I have to say, that has made for some VERY heavy sheets! I'm a bit nervous to wash them both at the same time! That said, though, I love them, and the cutting/sewing instructions were a breeze. I haven't even put the elastic into the bottom sheet yet, and it's staying put quite well on our pillow top mattress. I made the queen size.
