I did a pair of these chairs for a designer client....she asked for no piping except on the cushion and a waterfall skirt.
In all my 11 yrs of slipcovering, I have not yet done a waterfall skirt. I have thought about them and envisioned doing them, and have layed in bed figuring out how to make them work. So it was exciting to finally do one, and it worked out like it did in my head. YEA!
Chair--- After....I actuallly liked the look of no piping on this one. Kind of gave it a different feel.
Front of the arm- I angles the front skirt piece to cover over the front edge of the arm, so the front skirt piece would be all one piece.
I guess I should explain what a waterfall skirt is....it's when the skirt isn't attatched separately. The skirt is part of the main body. Normally the skirt is attatched to the main body with piping sewn in between.
I tacked the top of the pleat of the skirt for added durability.
I really liked the casualness of this chair. The fabric was a textured chunky woven cream cotton. LOVED IT!
