The size of sheets you indicated is close to the size of a twin size mattress which measures 38" x 75". Are you looking for fitted sheets to fit a mattress size of 36" x 79" or flat sheets for a mattress size of 36" x 79", or just flat sheets measuring 36 x 79" ?

FYI standard flat sheets for Twin size mattress are 66" x 96". And standard fitted sheets for Twin mattress are 39" x 75".

Okay. What you need to buy then is fitted sheets for Twin XL mattress.. The Twin XL mattress measures 39" x 80". The sheets for this size of mattress are called "Extra Long"

Here are are a few places where you can buy them from:
