Butter Pat Pleats

This is the second set of slipcovers I have made for these chairs.  The first set I made were done in a Potterybarn striped fabric around 10 years ago.  This new set is done in a 100% white cotton and finished with butter pat knife pleats along the bottom.  They are called butter pat pleats because each pleat is the size of a pat of butter.  I am in love with the fresh new look!  

This is the first set of slipcovers

 And of course I could not write this blog post without mentioning the 
Cleveland Cavaliers 2016 World Champions. As you all know I am from Cleveland, OH and you all have heard all the Cleveland jokes.  Well, no more jokes, we are the NBA World Champions. 


  1. This looks great! Did you have to do an undercover of some sort to cover the red? :)

    1. Hi Colleen! No undergarment needed. We chose a fabric with a heavier weight.

  2. What's an average cost of getting a slipcover done I don't wing back chair? Thanks

    1. Hi Melissa,
