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. A New Slipcover For My Office Chair.
A New Slipcover For My Office Chair
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! Don’t you love the checkerboard pattern?
I did not use a pattern. The towel was just sort of laid out 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!
