Slip Cover Twins

A perfect fit.

Another set of slipcover twins, well almost.
One is done and the other slipcover is in the process of.

This will be my second set of slipcover twins.
The first set of wingback slipcovers were made in 2011.
Both are sewn in two different fabrics, matelasse and cotton duck.

Twins in the dinning room.

This time I decided not to do piping.
As much as it is more time consuming, 
I think I like the look of piping better.  
That's ok because I see many slipcovers in my future.

I love a little pleat that shows off some leg.

I do know how to sew in zippers, but I think bows are so much cuter.

This is the pattern on the matelasse.

As you can see it will fit right in with the other furniture in the room.
The fireplace in the back is a future project.

This chair is the other chair waiting to be finished.
I usually cut all the fabric first and work on a little each day.
I should be finished in a couple of weeks, in between work, school and life.

The new chairs are 17 years old and some of the first pieces of furniture 
we bought when we finish building the house.  
They are well made, but I do not like the dark green color. 
 Slipcovers are far easier than reupholstering a wingback chair for sure.

These are Mr. M.'s favorite chairs and they will stay in our master bedroom.
The good thing about having furniture that are slipcovered in WHITE,
They look good in every room.
My other chairs have been in the living room, basement, office and dinning room.
