Having fun with Ticking!

My customer found this great settee at a house sale in her neighborhood for a steal. I had a lot of fun making this slipcover. The fabric had a nice stretch to it and was a dream to work with. The fabric had a nice weight to it and did not have to be lined.

Here is a before picture.

Wow! What a difference with the new slipcover! I love the little knife pleats.

The arm was a little tricky to work with but I liked the challenge.

Stay tuned for more fun with ticking. The next slipcover I am working on will be done in another ticking fabric in almost the same colors.
