I've done this before. I bought a "bed-in-a-bag" and the dust ruffle was annoying to both of us and anyway ripped the second time I washed it (on accident, I swear!). The "bed-in-a-bag" came with an extra set of sheets and pillowcases (for only $80 total) so I put the second fitted sheet on the box spring and the first fitted sheet on the mattress and voila, clean lines, matching from pillows to almost floor level. We have to be able to see under our bed to be comfortable.
