A Chair and a Loveseat

I really need to make my blog titles more creative. Instead I get right to the point. This is a beautiful slipcover done in a white denim with black cording. I took several pictures from different angles to show how the black cording defines the shape of the chair. I fell in love with this slipcover. She wanted the legs to show so I made the skirt a little longer than the existing skirt. This customer called me after winning one of my office chair slipcovers in a raffle. It was nice to see the slipcovered office chair being used in her office. Darn, I forgot to take a picture of it when I dropped off the slipcovers.

I also did a loveseat slipcover for this same customer. The fabric is a mattelasse and washed beautifully. I added the cording down the center of the back to help the slipcover conform to the shape of the loveseat and finished the bottom with the ever popular mini knife-pleats. I copied what the upholsterer had done. I gave new life to the seat cushions by wrapping them in dacron.

Here is the before picture.
