Mega Project - Armchair Slip Cover

Salam..

Hi all! Ok, note to readers. This post is overloaded with photos. I think that's d best way to illustrate such tedious process tbroughout this project.
I referred to books, internet & youtube for this project. Pheww! Felt like I was researching for a thesis. Haha


Anyhow... surprisingly it only took 3 days to complete.
Day1: take measurement of the armchair/wingchair & cut out the measured pieces respectively.
Day2: drape the pieces onto the chair, leave room for seam allowances & tucks (back of the seat)
Day3: baste stich, take the whole piece out of the chair, & machine stitch
You can also refer here for some examples.



This is from a book that i found at Times bookstore. Didnt buy the book though. Just snapped fotos of the neccessary pages. hehe unethical, i know!





Day 1: Measure & cut






Dont forget to label all your pieces.


Day 2: Draping

This is how i pinned the fabric. It is best if you have t-pins. If not, the normal pins will do just fine




I leave about 4-5inches extra to tuck into the seat


















Once the fabric is taking shape, u can pin it this way to keep the fabric pieces together. 



Day 3: Baste stitch, followed by machine stitch


Baste stitch. Using a contrasting thread. 


Before..... :(

After.....:)
