White Couch Slipcover


My client decided she wanted to redo her couch in white twill.


BEFORE---


Couch---AFTER--- I was in love with all her decorating---that turquoise secretary desk was 100% me.


And check out her rug in the entry! BEAUTIFUL!!!


I had enough fabric, so I self-lined the skirts.


We decided to "box" the back cushions to give it a cleaner lines.





SIDE NOTE--- I ran my first full Marathon this past weekend! I finished in 4 hours and 30 min.
Here we are at 3:30am getting ready to go catch the bus to the start line! We'd been training since January. It was a bit brutal on those 8 degree days.

Here we are at the start line....pouring rain, luckily they handed out trash bags on the bus. Here's our group of 5 from my neighborhood that signed up.


Here is Teresa and I at mile 13! Still feeling great. I decided to take it easy and enjoy the journey and not push hard for a good time. I ignored the 4:15 pacer when he passed us---I didn't want to feel pressure to go faster.

I wore my trash bag till mile 20...it was still raining, but more of a drizzle by then. I was SOAKED by the finish. I couldn't wait to get back to the condo to sit in the hot tub and eat chocolate donuts!



Here I am running into the finish---my boys jumped in and ran the last bit with me! It wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. I never hit the "wall" that everyone talks about. 

At mile 22 I was thinking, "Yea!!! I won't have to stop and use the porta potty!" Almost immediately after that thought, I had to start looking for the next porta potty! Dang it! Oh well enjoy the journey right? I ended up having to find one at 23 miles and again at 24.5 miles! Too much powerade, I guess!

Teresa and I finished it together!



All five of us finished within 18 min. of each other. The first of us came in at 4:12 and the last of us came in at 4:30.

I am in love with that white slipcover! Oh how I wish you lived in California! Question about your DVD- what is the skill level of sewing needed to start. I am a novice sewer but am looking to slipcover or have someone slipcover my couch. What do you think? Would the video be too much for me?

Anyway u can tell me what kind of twill she used? I have a double arm chaise that I am paying a sewing lady to make a slipcover for me by taking apart the old slipcover and making a new ne for me. We only have hobby lobby and Joanne's here but my seat cushion is 50" wide and I don't kow what kind of twill I can buy at that width?
