it was half term, but no skiving until this little dearie in was delivered. this otherwise very robust modern armchair arrived with a tired cream cover that desperately needed replacing. i'm nerdy enough to enjoy pattern matching so much that a complicated arrangement of grey checks were a joy.
|for fabric this chunky, i use very thin piping cord for an elegant finish. naturally|
|finished and ready for delivery|
on an interesting note, here's how the work panned out…
one full day - measuring, planning and cutting out
one and a half days - reupholstering
half a day - making box piped cushions
one full day - making and attaching the pleated skirt. yes one whole day.
happily the lovely lady was thrilled with her new-look armchair and it looked very splendid in her many shades of grey room.
next in the shed... i'm standing by for delivery of a chaise longue. meanwhile my upholstery workshops @theFarm continue apace.
