A Wing And A Skirt

Wow, what a difference a skirt makes!! Check out the long skirt on this wing chair. Just wanted you all to know that I have been very busy this summer with slipcovers, trying to take some time off on Sunday's, going to wedding showers for my son, getting ready for the wedding....whew! It has been busy.  So don't think I am not sewing, just not blogging like I should! 

Look at the pretty legs, it is a shame to cover them, but sometimes, you just have to so that you can get a new look.

 Check out the upper curve on this chair. This can be a tricky spot when you are sewing.  I don't think I have ever had one so curved.

This is a side view. Check out the top of the arms, they are flat, just like another chair that I had slipcovered this spring. In constructing wing chair slipcovers...there are just so many seams!!! Just look at this chair from this side and you will see what I am taking about.  See the vertical seam on the side of the arm.  Lots and lots of seams and different tuck ins.
                        Another view of this very pronounced upper back area.  Such a pretty curve.
              Here is a view of the skirt at the corners.  You can see that the leg is pushing from the inside.                                  It still looks pretty and it certainly does change the looks of the chair. 
                            Another view of the top of those arms and all the seams that have to be made.
The client was pleased and so was I with the way the chair slipcover fit. I didn't have to put a zipper in and look how nicely the cover hugs the chair.
