Lola Loves Ruffles

Let me introduce you to my customer's adorable puppy, "Lola".  Lola loves her new slipcover with flowing ruffles.  Lola's owner loves the shabby chic style of slipcovers with ample ruffles, slightly baggy fit, and draping skirts. I enjoyed creating this slipcover with the mix of linen and ruffles giving that classic shabby chic style.

Here is a side view showing the use of ruffles instead of cording under the arm.
Here is the inspiration photo from the Chez Fifi Blog: August 2010
This slipcover is by Susie and Mark Holt owners of Posh on Palm. I would love to visit their new store location in beautiful Downtown Sarasota in a Grand Hotel one block off the Bayfront at 33 South Palm Ave. Sarasota, Fl.


Back view of inspiration photo. Susie Holt loves to add lace to her slipcovers. I love this style and have added the Posh on Palm blog to my bloglist.

 My customer wanted her chair to resemble the beautifully unique style of the Posh on Palm chair by using a mattelasse fabric for the arm fronts and boxing around the ottoman.

Here is a little footstool in same fabric and ruffles...Too cute!

  1. So pretty! And that mattelasse is gorgeous!

  2. Love it so much. I never thought of using ruffles instead of piping, I am so doing this with the next one. I have used vintage mattelasse and I had a problem with it becoming too worn. If I want white the kids have to be able to sit on it and they are hard on the furniture. So glad I found you. Alaina
