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.
