WHITE LINEN SLIPCOVERS

I finished last night and just got home from delivering these white linen slipcovers. The good thing is, they are washable; so if the unthinkable (cranberry sauce or red white, eek!) happens, my client can wash it right out. I don't think the grandkids will be allowed on the furniture tomorrow, though, just to be safe!



Over all view of the sofa, 2 wing chairs and the ottoman.
The sofa with its extra large pillows.
I did a 2" pleated ruffle on the 3 throw pillows.
The skirts on the sofa and ottoman are gathered just at the corners.
The ottoman also got a short skirt.
The wing chairs are a slightly different size, though to look at them, you can't tell. Luckily, my client pointed it out when I was there cutting because I, for sure, would have just cut one, made two the same size and just now when I was putting everything on, I would have found out I screwed up. I've done it before and it isn't fun.
All the pieces, except of course the ottoman, got buttons up the back, though none of them had to be undone to get the slipcovers on. They just look cuter that way.

Hope everyone has a wonderful and yummy Thanksgiving!

Hi Tamerie... ooh those whites are so very beautiful... I would be so scared I would spill on them, knowing me and how much I spill things! Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Bisous... Julie Marie

Hi! Do you take orders from outside of your area? I'm located in the NYC area and have a wing back chair I would like a white linen cover for. Is it possible to send the dimensions to you and a photo and have it made that way? careyannedawson@gmail.com
Thank you. Carey
