Best Ever!

I needed to make a slipcover for a wing chair. I borrowed this book from the library and renewed it twice. It is the best book I have read on slipcovers. The instructions were concise and easy to follow. The wing chair turned out great. I decided that I had to have this book for my personal reference library.


I really love this book! In my opion it is gorgeous It is for designing and sewing slipcovers at home It even shows you how to create a slipcover using sheets There was a picture of a stool and you put some batting over the seat, and wrap the slipcover over the whole thing and it looked awesome! Who knew? There is a picture of a small goofy looking foot stool It has spindly legs and a cow pattern cover. What they turned it into was absolutely amazing! One example turned a round seat into a square with a small skirt at the bottom and the other example was a more formal look I think you could go look at all your pieces and see what you could turn them into Instructions are great including how to measure and a directional layour for cutting your fabric They even include pillow covers you can make The language is simple but they cover all areas including how to meet corners and have them come out looking professional Great find!
