I delivered these slipcovers yesterday. Although I love and prefer gathered skirts, I definitely don't prefer making them. This skirt took 12 widths of the fabric, which is a lot. I kept sewing and sewing and gathering and gathering. This was all going on 2 weeks ago when it was so stinking hot, and working was very challenging. My workroom faces west, which means the afternoons are brutal for me.
My client ask that I do buttons on the throw pillows.
The chair and ottoman
Back of chair. The sofa back is the same, but it is against the wall.

The new living room. The old fabric was also denim, but dark blue and light blue and the back cushions had light blue denim on one side and a blue and white toile on the other. The room now is much fresher and clean- looking. As almost always happens, once you do one thing (or, in this case, 3) everything else seems tired and in need of changing. The rug may be next in the process. I don't slipcover rugs, though, so for that she's on her own!
