Use of a duvet cover?

Can I just get a duvet to go over my existing comforter set then get matching shams? Or is a duvet a whole seperate blanket all together?

  • A duvet cover is to cover your comforter.

  • you sure can. A duvet is just like a giant buttoned pillowcase for a comforter

  • You can. You just have to watch them because sometimes the comforter tends to get wadded up in there.

  • We got a duvet for my DD- a Hello kitty one that just fit over her blanket that she had. They're GREAT because they're so easy to wash. You just unzip it, pull the blanket out and wash the duvet for normal wash and you only have to hit the blanket now and then. It's a great way to change the room without spending a bunch on a new bedset. Our set came with matching pillow shams, so we didn't have to buy a new sheet set. Ebay is great for cheaper ones.

  • If you can sew simple straight lines. You could also save a lot of money and sew 2 flat sheets together in the same size as your comforter--turn reverse sides out, sew 3 sides and then turn right side out, and secure the 4th "open side" with oversized decorative buttons. :o)
