Dining Chair Dressed Up in Embroidered Slipcover

Dining room chairs slipcovered in embroidered cotton? That’s right and they are absolutely lovely, one placed at each end of Judy’s dining room table.

For this custom slipcover project I used unbleached muslin with candlewicking, a form of whitework embroidery. Not exactly the type of durable, heavy weight fabric I typically recommend for slipcovers.

If you’re a parent of small kiddos and/or pets you’re probably thinking NO WAY! I agree. However, for Judy’s occasional use, this fabric will function just fine.

I preshrunk the fabric, which relaxed the overall look and feel. I also lined the slipcover to add body.

Judy’s pair of vintage armchairs are the perfect size and style for mixing with her wood dining chairs. Her new slipcovers are the finishing touch to her very pretty dining room.
