A CHAIR FOR A PRINCESS OR WHITE DENIM TO THE RESCUE

This not-so-lovely chair was picked up by my client at a garage sale. Nice lines, but far from nice fabric. Her youngest daughter's birthday is coming up and she thought it would make a good 'throne' for the birthday girl. The only dilemma was which color of denim to use: pink, green or white?
In the end, she chose white.
Every princess slipcover needs buttons up the back, don't you think?
