What could be better than a clean and fresh wingback makeover with a slipcover? The sweetest of clients called me about a chair she wanted to have slipcovered. The wingback chair was going to be in her vacation house at Alys Beach, Florida. Alys Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. *No pressure to make this a beautiful slipcover.*

The slipcover needed to be cozy and washable. The best choice for this project was a twill (cotton bull denim). I am sharing my secret supplier for the best cotton bull denim HERE.
Did I mention that I LOVE to make slipcovers with bull denim twill? They look wonderful and this fabric is a dream to sew. I have found that it is best to wash and dry all cotton slipcovers before making slipcovers to insure that they don’t shrink after they are constructed.
This was a fun date-night with Mr. Kippi. I know he loved helping me wash and dry 55 yards of cotton bull denim on a Friday night.

See what I mean as a result we had pure joy on this date.
Wingback makeover starts with a plan:
My official cut plan (aka spiral notebook), pencil and measuring tape. I start every slipcover design with all the measures so I can plan the design.
My favorite glass head pins and UV protective thread make a quality slipcover. Do you see my favorite scissors? I have 7 pairs of them because they are the most important tool I use.
This is my happy place for sure. Sitting at my favorite sewing machine creating something beautiful for a special client.
Notice the cord junction in the arm where I removed a little of the outside arm cord to reduce the bulk.
