Elise’s pair of Pottery Barn Brooks Chairs were used more by her dogs than her and her husband. “No more!,” she wrote, “we’re taking them back for ourselves!”
Right on, Elise!
I received her original slipcover to copy in a cotton print, Ikat Spots. It’s a home decor fabric of medium weight with a directional pattern that required matching. I’m not sure how it washes. This slipcover was made to dry clean only.
The Brooks is a slipper chair design with an attached seat cushion. The fitted cover pulls on (no zipper or Velcro closure) and has a flap style skirt. I kept the slipcover copy simple like the original with only one row of welt cord and minimal top stitching to finish the seams and hem.
