I started sewing ten months ago, was feeling pretty comortable with it, and decided I was capable of sewing a slipcover for an armchair. How hard could it be, right? Pretty hard, actually, for a beginner like me. I'll post a few more details and the rest of the story later. The welting on the top of the cushion is a little crooked now that I look at it, and some parts aren't as fitted as I'd hoped, but oh well. It's a miracle it even fits! I'm not sure if I like the pleated bottom, that I tried to copy from a chair I saw in Domino magazine, but I'm going to give it a few weeks to grow on me before I rip it off and put on a straight panel. Do the pleats look playful and fun or just old-fashioned? And would you actually tell me if you thought they looked bad??? Probably not. If anyone's going to be honest with me it's Marie, so speak up Rie if you hate them. But WAHOO for being done! (for now?) Now I can FINALLY get back to sewing fun, easy projects.
