Chair before....red slipcover (muslin underneath)
Chair after....gray embroidered ovals! This fabric was BEAUTIFUL and a little on the stiff side.
Front of arm...I ended all the ovals at the same spot, so I could match the skirt to the main body.
There was velcro underneath the arms on the original chair, so I sewed a strip on the slipcover. I like the way it keeps the fabric tight up under the arm.
Front of the chair.
I have heard gray is the new tan....I think I have to agree after all my past few posts....
Side note #1--- I just received this email the other day about my dvd... I love to hear back from people.
I wanted to send you a picture of the loveseat I slipcovered. I am a one person home based drapery workroom. I have been part time(emphasis on “part”) since my kids were in preschool! Now my daughter is a freshman in college and my son a freshman in high school. Your DVD helped me conquer some trouble spots...zippers...pleated skirt... I really enjoyed watching your DVD! Your relaxed style of teaching is just what a over thinker like me needs...and I loved the music. The other day my son was humming a song and I said “ Hey...I know that from my slipcover DVD!”. Please excuse the bumpy back cushions...they old ones were stuffed and I had to pull it out to transfer the stuffing to the new forms...they still need to smooth out.The fabric was a small diamond patterned chenille..definitely needed my industrial to get thru all the thickness. Also, thank you for your resource list. I already contacted Joe and he sent me samples of linen!
Thanks Again...and great blog!
Here is a picture that she sent me of her loveseat that she slipcovered. I am thinking she did a wonderful job!!!!
Side note #2--- just got back from running Vegas Ragnar, and have worked everyday since then. The fall gets really busy. Everyone is getting their houses put together for their company to come.
I also had a design client that called and needs 2 couches and 9 chairs done by Nov. 11th for a store that's opening in Fashion Place Mall. So Ladies, I am now booked until Dec. 7th. and then I will be taking Dec. 15-31st off for the holidays. SO I have a few spots left, email me if you want on my list.
