Ruffled Slipcovers


One of the skills my very beautiful and very talented mother taught me was how to sew. I grew up sewing prom dresses and curtains alike (yeah we were poor). Have I mentioned that I dislike sewing? Well, I REALLY do and this last project has just reminded me of that. I guess if someone is offering me a sizable amount of money I can push past my extreme dislike for a few hours.

Due to my love-loss, I chose not to make a tutorial for these slip covers. If you are really interested in learning how, email me and I'm sure I could help you.


Recognize the chairs? They are the french twins I posted last weekend (see here). The lovely lady who commissioned the chairs also bribed me into sewing the slipcovers.


I'm not really and "bow and ruffle" kind of girl, but I do love the detail they give the seat.



What do you think? French and feminine?
