Grey Linen Slipcover Shaped to Fit the Curves

Grey Linen Cotton Custom Slipcover

Curves, tufts and bulges, oh my!  This roly-poly chair was a doozie to slipcover.  I had to tackle it with just the right fabric and a few strategically placed shaping seams.

The fabric:  I used 8 oz. linen blend canvas. It worked like a charm for this project. Pliable enough to drape and shape over the bulges and thick enough to hide the plaid upholstery and tufting.  

The fit:  A soft, relaxed fit was the way to go for this chair. Fabric doesn’t lay smoothly over puffy contours without some help from shaping seams. So, I created two of them on the inner back and one over each arm elbow. They’re like princess seams in a blouse. I edge stitched the seams to give them a finished look.
