Modern Floral Chair

First of all, I fell in love with this fabric! I love the turquoise,mustard and gray together. Since there was no cushion on the seat I had to do tuck in around the seat. I also ended up using velcro on the bottom edges of the slipcover to hold it down and keep the concave curve on the front of the chair. If that makes sense.

Sorry these pics are in my garage and not in my clients beautiful home, but my fabulous husband is dropping this off for me. So if I wanted a pic I had to do it before he left. I can't expect him to do my drop off and take pictures for me too.

I love the fabric (and your site as well) but I've got to ask, does it bug you or your clients that the fabric is wrinkled? It would drive me nuts. Just curious.

Slipcovers by Shelley said...

Most people with slipcovers choose to prewash their fabric, so they can wash the slipcovers instead of drycleaning. Wrinkles happen when you wash... you can always iron your slipcovers if you choose to. I usually don't iron them before I drop them off, since I have to bag them up and they end up wrinkled again.

Wow Shelley, I'm so amazed at what a tight fit you can get! It's so awesome! Who needs reupholstering when you can get a slipcover that fits so well? Amazing!

I hadn't thought about the fact that you could remove a slipcover:) It makes sense now. Thanks!

Thank you very much! As much as I love the fabric, I know that without you beautiful work, the chair would not be nothing to look at! I am soooo impressed with it and wish I was brave enough to try a tough project like that.

I love the fabric and it is perfect for the chair! I made my first slipcover last week and I have a brand new admiration for your talent. I don't think I'll make another one in the near future. :)
