Paisley Slipcover Makeover

Ottoman Slipcover in Raymond Waites Mill Creek Fabric

How gorgeous is this paisley fabric?!

The pattern is Mariel Cliffside by Raymond Waites for Mill Creek. Designed for dry clean only upholstery and drapery you would never think this linen/rayon blend would work in a washable slipcover.

It turns out this fabric is slipcover perfect.  My customer washed and dried the yardage and we instantly knew the weight, coverage and hand-feel were spot on for her armchair and ottoman makeover.

Both chair and ottoman had a tailored skirt to the floor. Removing them and making a no-skirt slipcover gave these pieces an instant update!

  1. Beautiful! I also wash and dry “dry clean only” fabrics before using them. Not only is it cheaper and easier to maintain, but I prefer a relaxed look.
