Look at my Wing Chair Slipcover!
|I know, your jaws are just dropping, right?!! How awesome does that look?!Okay here’s the truth. I do think it looks amazing. Really. I find myself admiring my work several times a day. But this wing chair slipcover is NOT without mistakes and flaws!! I spent much longer working on it than I thought. Let me take you through my journey…|
|Here’s the original chair, to refresh your memory. (A great Goodwill find for $20!)|
|I loved the pleated skirt but I knew I wouldn’t want to iron those every time I washed the slipcover, so I made it detachable with velcro going all the way around.|
|I made the back fit snugly by putting velcro on both sides. Works great because I can undo the velcro and easily take the slipcover off, but then it looks tight and secure when it’s fastened. And with the pleated skirt you can’t even see them!|
|The wings were actually not that tricky. I opted to not do piping down the wing, mostly because I had just run out and didn’t want to get more.|
UPDATE: Since this post I have completed my Couch Slipcover! There are much more detailed instructions in the Slipcover Post Series I wrote. If you want to see how I did this, please come visit these links and pin them for future reference!
