Slipping in a Wingback-Cottage Style

I am waiting....for the white cotton duck-it seems to be on backorder....everywhere. Who bought it all?????? I have a couple of chairs and an ottoman coming up for the Kappa Delta house in Troy-----meanwhile, back at the workshop---I had a call to slipcover a wingback. So, why not-I have time to "slip" :) it in.
And, was I ever surprised to see the fabric....a cute cottage-y floral matelasse. Now, I have enjoyed all the white and natural lately-but this sweet cottage style fabric was a welcome change. I think I will maybe change my fees to include "a list of your favorite fabric shops"...I would love to know where Kathy bought this fabric. Matelasse is such a great fabric-a little more difficult to work with when adding cording and sewing through multiple layers...but the texture and the quilted effect is worth it.
Kathy requested a gathered skirt...and, I hope she was thinking a short, gathered skirt...adorable, I think :)

Plans to wash some white cotton duck in the next couple of days and start the slipcovers for the Kappa Delta chairs and ottoman.

Coming soon...natural and cream linen ruffled ottoman slipcovers...


  1. I love that floral, like you the lack of color eventually gets to me...

  2. I love the quilted fabric! Very cute slipcover.

  3. That is a pretty pattern, I do love roses. Great job, I am sure your client will love it.
