A custom linen slipcover did wonders for Annette’s faded and outdated sleeper sofa. What a transformation!
We used heavy weight, Home Furnishing Linen in oatmeal (an undyed, natural flax color) from Gray Line Linen. It’s my favorite linen for causal slipcovers with a French Country look. It has a such a lovely crumple and drape after washed. Fabric update August 2016 — the quality of this 100% linen is not what it use to be. I’ve removed it from my favorites list.
I detached the back cushions and boxed them. An instant update! I also raised the skirt a bit and made the front arm pieces flat. It’s amazing how just a few small style changes can make an old sofa look brand new.
