Susan picked out this beautiful fabric from Cloth Barn in Goldsboro. I didn't have to put a zipper in the slipcover, it fits beautifully. The coordinating pillow fabric is so soft and it is kind of puckered. I put a down pillow insert in that I purchased from a consignment store for 3.99! Consignment stores are a good place to check for down inserts and Ross Stores are also! The pillow cover may not be to your liking...but go for the down insert!
