For the past two months I have been desperate to find time to make a slipcover for my office chair. It finally happened last week.
The new linen upholstery had sadly not worn very well and several holes had developed on the edge of the seat.
Now knowing better I selected an antique French linen/cotton dishtowel from my collection to use as the seat fabric. This I know will absolutely wear well! I love the checkerboard pattern.
I did not use a pattern. I just sort of laid out the towel and cut. I arranged it so that the striped edges were angled on the corners.
It’s not perfect. But it seems to suit the old chair.
The ruffle and ties are made from a lighter weight linen.
The back was tricky to configure but it ended up being my favorite detail. This is good since this is what you see the most of.
A sweet seat indeed!
