This is the before love seat. Not lookin' too spiffy. And it does nothing for the room. It just looks blaa.
This is the after. What a huge difference a slipcover makes! The room suddenly looks brighter and more inviting. The white pillows also break up all the stripes.
A lot of people I know do not like sewing with stripes or plaids because of all the matching involved. I think it is much easier. It also appeals to my sense of things needing to be in perfect order. I like when everything lines up, so to speak. I've been told that I am very technical in my work, and when doing slipcovers, that's exactly what you want.
