Chair Slipcover

What could be better than a clean and fresh wingback chair 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.*

Slipcover Fabric

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.

Special Notes

Did I mention that I LOVE to slipcover chairs 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.

My tools for a slipcover design and cut plan

Slipcovers start with a plan

My official cut plan (aka spiral notebook), pencil and measuring tape. I start every chair slipcover design with all the measures so I can plan the design.

Checking my cord placement

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.
