Part 2 of My First Really Big Slipcover Job

These slipcovers are the second ones I ever made.  There were two chairs, an ottoman and this sofa.  Remember I was still in the very early learning stage of making slipcovers and was so unsure of my abilitiy that things would take me forever to do.  About a year after I did this woman's house and I actually felt like I knew what I was doing, I seriously considered calling her and telling her that if she bought the fabric, I would re-do all of the slipcovers.  I never called to make the offer and she never contacted me to tell me that they had fallen apart.  I always wished I had done a better job for her.

This was her daughters' room.  Again, everything was in white:  the duvet covers, the beds and the pillows.  After a while, you do start going blind with all the white.

I can't seem to get any more than 5 pictures on my posts, so next time I'll show you the master bedroom.  She actually had me use a black and white silk on a couple of the things I made.

I was the samet way with my first tutu's....I wanted to call and say....." I know what I am doing now....want a new one". They seemed like they liked them but I know they would really like the way I do them now.

All that white in our house would be covered in syrup eventually.
