White slipcovers. There is just something so clean and refreshing and comfortable about a white slipcover. If you check out my Pinterest boards, you will quickly see that they are a favorite of mine :) We have a couple at our house, and while MANY proclaim the virtues of white slipcovers, they are just aren't a great fit for our household. It just comes down to what works for you :)
So, all that to say, when I get a chance to make a white slipcover for someone else, it's very enjoyable!
This chair and ottoman are well-loved by my client; they just needed a new look. My client requested a simple cover with pleats. So that's what I did...
The fabric is white cotton denim from Hobby Lobby (don't forget to use your 40% off coupon if you go, or watch their sales for 50% off deals!); it had a soft, comfortable feel and was nice to work with (and it was pre-washed, of course).
The cushion got a new layer of Dacron to fluff it up. And because the fabric was white and the fabric underneath was noticeably darker, I made muslin undercovers for both the chair and the ottoman (it helps the white slipcover look more white). You can see the undercover on the ottoman here...
Also, to keep the ottoman slipcover in place, I added a piece underneath that is velcroed to the underside (see the "whiter" piece?)
I love me some pleats :)
So, do you (or would you) have white slipcovers in your house?
