Oversized Arm Chair Slipcover

I have a great before and after for you today! It's remarkable the change that this slipcover has made in this piece of furniture. I also made a cute matching pillow out of some of the left over fabric. As the bias cut edges wear, they will add more texture to the lattice design. As you can see in the pictures, that back cushion looks a lot fluffier than it was before. I got curious and took apart the cushion inside to see what was happening. It was a blend of fiberfill and feathers that were matted and squished from use. So, I took a few hours and pulled apart all the fibers and restuffed the cushion (see the picture below). It made an incredible difference. And while I'm not ready to do th

Wingback Chairs

These wingback chairs were one of my favorite projects to slipcover from the past few months. The curvy lines and just the difference that a solid neutral fabric made in their appearance was so much fun for me to see! Liz (of LizMarieBlog) brought me these beauties to work on. They're for her new farmhouse and I'm excited to see the ways that she styles them. She is super sweet and talented, so please check out her website. I am in awe of all the projects she accomplishes in such a short amount of time. As you can see from above, the chairs have a lovely, retro floral print upholstery. It's worn out on the arms and seat but they still sit well and have may more years of use ahead of them! Th

Scrolled Back Chair

Here's another fun project that has a dramatic before and after. As you can see from below, the scrolled back chair has quite a dark floral upholstery. The new slipcover is made from a creamy colored heavy weight textured fabric.

Slipcovered Loveseat and Ottoman

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to add pictures of past projects that I've had the pleasure of working on. Up first is a loveseat and ottoman that were really well made (I think they were made by Ethan Allen Furniture), they just needed an update in fabric. My client choose a herringbone weave fabric from Richloom called Olson in the colorway cement. I've done several slipcovers in this fabric and it washes up beautifully and drapes nicely. It's very thick and will cover up any upholstery underneath. Here you can see what it looked like before! The plaid was totally covered by the slipcover and updates these pieces to a fresh, new look.

Hello!

Welcome! I've been sewing a lot the past few months and working on setting up a new website just for my slipcovering business. This past week, I finished up this pair of sofas. They were so much fun to do... and a little challenging, too. But, I like a good challenge! I knew those curves on the arms were going to make these slipcovers look great and the box pleated skirt just adds another tailored detail. Here's what they looked like before... The fabric used for these is from painters drop cloths. I've found the drop cloths wash up nice and soft and provide great coverage and durability. Thanks for joining me here and I'll be back soon with more projects!
