Modern Beach Style Slipcover

I have done several slipcovers for this customer and I LOVE her style! The fabric she chose is a 12oz denim in an off white color.  The light color is a perfect backdrop for her selection of nautical color pillows that transports you to the seaside.  The slipcover keeps it's modern style with topstitching and a clean no frills skirt straight to the floor.

I am excited to share my new care labels and iron-on labels from Dutchlabelshop.



 
 I updated my care labels adding the written instructions along with the symbols.  The first set of labels had only symbols.  After talking to my customers I found out most people don't know what the symbols mean. This saves me time in printing or emailing care instructions to each customer and they will have the instructions at their finger tips.


 There were two nooks on either side of the television and we made new cushion covers in matching fabric.

Romantic Rose Slipcover

This gorgeous floral fabric is 100% linen. The fabric has pink roses on a natural rustic oatmeal linen background. The linen was a dream to work with and washed beautifully.  She chose to not use cording and a clean straight skirt to keep with the modern style of the sofa. I ended up saving every scrap of the fabric to use in small projects like lavender sachets or something else I think of but they were too beautiful to put in the trash. LOL


 This is the before picture.  My customer loved the previous floral slipcover but was ready for a lighter look.

Hand-Me-Down Chaise

This slipcover is a birthday present for a 13 year old. The down cushion chaise was originally the grandmother's then was handed down to a daughter and now to the granddaughter. Each generation had a new slipcover made and you can see some of the different fabrics used in the before pictures. The new slipcover was done in a matelasse diamond fabric and we used some of the grandmother's fabric to make a pillow cover.  A beautiful family heirloom ready for the next generation!


 The down cushion is so luxurious! 


 She has the option to flip the pillow over to a matching fabric.

Topstitching detail on Modern Style Sofa

This slipcover is for a new Arhaus Remington sofa 108" long.  This is a very large sofa.  Each cushion is 4 ft wide by 3 ft deep. The customer wants to protect the Belgium linen upholstery while her children are small. She chose to copy the upholstery and had me topstitch the seams.  The fabric is a linen/cotton blend and a very close match to the Belgium linen. The topstitch detail and waterfall skirt are perfect for the modern look of the sofa.

Butter Pat Pleats and Corset Lacing

I slipcovered all the furniture in the living room except one chair for this customer.  I love the details she chose.  She wanted the butter pat pleats on the sofa, chair and ottoman then she wanted the two matching side chairs to have contrasting cording and a corset lacing detail on back. Fun, fun, fun!

 The living room with all slipcovers.

 She also ordered the pet covers for the sofa and the exposed wood chair. Here is a picture of the pet cover over the seat cushions of the sofa. I am pretty sure the pet cover was on the exposed wood chair in all the pictures above.

 I am lifting the chair cushion to show you how the pet cover is attached.
and this is me holding up the sofa pet cover

I am excited to share my new care labels I purchased from Dutch Label Shop.  All my slipcovers will have these care labels attached. I will be talking more about the care labels in the future.
