As you may or may not know already, Shabby Chic is no more. :-( I am sad about that because I always loved her fabrics and her style. I do not doubt for a minute, though, that Rachel Ashwell will be back, better than ever, in the not-too-distant future.
I did these slipcovers a couple of years ago. It is not actually Shabby Chic fabric but was made from the duvet covers that Rachel designed for Target. Figuring out how much fabric I need to make a slipcover is rather easy. Figuring out how many duvet covers to have my client purchase is not. I think, in the end, she bought 10 covers.
You can't really tell from this photo, but this sofa is huge. It is 120" across the back! I did a green/white gingham contrast welting and, instead of welting at the top of the skirt, I did a 1/2" ruffle.
This is a close up view of the small ruffle on the side pillows. We talked about doing the ruffle on all the cushions, but decided that would have been too much. Sometimes less definitely is more.
