Slipcover Linen Favorite: Washed Navy Blue

Navy Blue Linen Chair SlipcoverA request for a washed, navy blue linen slipcover is a sure sign of spring!

For this project I updated Roz’s vintage channel back chair with Brazil, a 100% linen in color navy blue 6 from InstaLinen. Brazil is offered in different shades of navy but no. 6 is my favorite. I love this dark inky color. It has just the right amount of black to make it a classic navy.

I’ve worked with Brazil several times and it never fails to impress. It’s a 12 oz. that is weighty and offers good coverage over worn upholstery.  The after washed look is beautiful! I rarely press this linen after I pre-shrink it (you can, but don’t have to). It comes out of the dryer with a soft dimpled texture  and floppy drape — like a quality linen should — but never any hard wrinkles. Be sure to follow my pre-shrink instructions.

Custom Chair Slipcover Navy LinenRoz’s vision for her new slipcover was casual with a tailored fit….and a little pleated skirt, which I will be adding. Cute! That’s easy to achieve with this type of linen. It’s versatile and works well for many different slipcover designs.
