My client chose this great heavy weight red basket weave fabric. It was literally like a blanket...super thick. Luckily she didn't want a skirt. I don't think I could have done one with this fabric.
Chair--BEFORE--- muslin covered and ready for a slipcover. 

 Chair--AFTER---great red chenille fabric.


 Back cushion and outside arm


 I loved it with her cow ottoman and floral chair--I love mixing patterns and textures, and having an unexpected piece.



Front of chair--- I made the front part under the cushion extend over to the outside arm, so the front panel would look cleaner.

SIDE NOTE---- My sister just finished putting together my Christmas card. My youngest lost his tooth the day before we took pics!

 Back of Card--- We joked that the boys were lowering each other down to catch lizards.

Lovely red chair cover!! How did you finish it off at the bottom, I think I can see piping...is it tied underneath? - I make loose covers plus other soft furnshings and its interesting to see how other people make theirs!! Great blog, thanks, Christine.

Love the slipcover! It is so perfectly fitted -- beautiful. You're right, that is a thick fabric, but it looks amazing and I'll bet it will be super comfy!
