Just in time for spring (it is coming, right?), my client has a new set of white slipcovers for her club chairs. But, let's start at the beginning :)
She found this pair of chairs for a steal on Craigslist, complete with slipcovers that were, for some reason, too short :/ Perhaps there was some shrinkage? Underneath, was forest green fabric in pretty good condition.
White denim was the vision, however, so that's what we did...
The white denim covered the green much better than I had anticipated - yay!
Just a note on the fabric: to get enough, my client had to purchase from several different locations of the same store, and there were slight variations in the fabric between the bolts. Fortunately, they were all the same white, but the weight and texture after washing were slightly different. I made sure to cut the pieces so the slightly heavier weight pieces were placed where the green needed to be covered the most. Thankfully, now that it's all together, it's not noticeable. And I'm not sure the differences would have been noticeable prior to washing. So, all this is to say: when purchasing fabric, whenever possible try to get it all from the same bolt, 'cause you just never know :)
We finished the down-filled back cushions as they had been done with the previous slipcover - kiss pleats and piping.
And made the skirt tall and all the way to the floor - much better! And I love the English roll arms...
