    Duvet Covers

    Hello all

    Can I stuff a down comforter that's 90x98 into a duvet that's 90x90?

    Thank you!

    Try it and see if it works ok. I would guess that extra stuffing is going to be bunched up in the duvet. You can use just the duvet on the bed. I never stuff them and just use them flat.

    Do you mean you want to stuff the comforter into a duvet cover, or in a duvet? (The duvet is the bag filled with feathers or whatever, and it's usually protected with a duvet cover.)

    If you mean the cover, I think it would depend on how thick the comforter is and how easily it compresses.

    I wouldn't. It would be all bunched up and you wouldn't like it. Cut off the extra and finish the cut end with serging, zig-zagging, hand stitching or something like that. That part will not be seen when the comforter is inside the duvet cover.

    Stuff and Enjoy. The glory of down comforters is that they are very flexible. If you don't like the way it looks. Make a new Patchwork Duvet Cover for it for the size you want.

    My opinion is the comforter is too large.

    One, I would not take Mavis's advice, unless you want feathers and down everywhere.

    It will not hurt a duvet to be in a cover that is too small. It will be a bit lumpy at the bottom. But if it were me, I would make the cover longer to accommodate the duvet. Just add a band of fabric to the top. Far earlier than adding to the bottom, although you could put a band of colour anywhere on the duvet.
