I grumpily searched the internet for a few days trying to find a new fabric for my slipcovers -- my mother-in-law's sister-in-law (how's that for confusing!?) took pity on me....or just wanted me to stop complaining on my facebook page....and sent me a few links for discounted interior design fabrics. Through some further searching I happened to stumble upon this wonderful website: The Fabric Guru where, in their clearance section, I was able to find....yes, here it comes....the PERFECT fabric (even better than the first). The price was astounding and the design fit perfectly with the style of my decor!
So, I am happy once again and ready to knock out these slipcovers once and for all! As a reminder, I used BibbidiBoppidiBeautiful's tutorial for slipcovering parson chairs as my guide for this project. I have one chair completed, and although it came out with a couple of 'oops!' spots, I am confident that with a little tweaking each cover from here on out will be easier and better than the last! Overall, I think the transformation is awesome and definitely breathes some new life into these old chairs!
You can see one of the oops! there in the back...it ended up much longer than the front of the skirt...but that can be easily fixed with some revised hemming :)
