Congratulations, it's a slipcover.

Since I wasn't able to use my camera today, I thought I would post some pictures I took a few weeks ago of the development of a slipcover. It all starts with a longing to have a slipcover of your own, a slipcover to love and be close to.
After conception, it begins to take form deep inside the pages of a notebook.

It is nourished by inspiring magazine pictures and an occasional home-decorating book.

Before long there are recognizable slipcover features. Will it have gathers? Will it have cute little pleats? Will all it's seams be strong and it's hem straight?

When it's time in the workwoom is complete, it is delivered with joy.

It was worth every minute of labor!

I love it! Love how you brought the seat down a few inches over the sides and front. I usually only bring my down just a little bit. Will have to try this next time.

Parson's chairs and dining chairs are my favorite to slipcover.

I wish I could hire you everyday just to make everyone I love happy with your creations...Martha Stewart needs a replacement. I am submitting your name to the powers at be.
