Gingham Slipcover for Restoration Hardware Chair

Custom Slipcover for Restoration Hardware Chair

A customer from California sent me her old Restoration Hardware slipcover to copy.

Like most worn & loved slipcovers this one was torn and sagging in places. But because the overall fit was in tack I was able to duplicate it with only a few modifications.

I made this slipcover with Chester Gingham color Tobacco/Natural by Roth Tompkins.  You’ll see a Dry Clean Only label on this fabric but I wash and dry it without any problem. Expect high shrinkage during the pre-shrink and moderate soft wrinkles.

This is the same cotton gingham I review on my favorite fabrics list.  It’s a medium weight cotton so I lined the skirt for better drape and weight.

Gingham check is one of my favorite classic fabrics. I especially like this charcoal & antique white color combo.  It’s ideal for slipcovers when you want an easy to live with pattern that goes with just about any decor.

For this project I used Roth & Tompkins Chester Gingham.  Beefy medium weight, good coverage, average shrinkage, washable and great looking.

Gingham is familiar, friendly, inviting, easy to live with.  It’s a classic that never goes out of style. I don’t know about you but hanging out with gingham always makes me feel happy 🙂

I especially like this Roth & Tompkins gingham check in color Charcoal & Antique White.

The beefy medium weight is just right for casual, washable slipcovers. I think you will also like how versatile it is. My customer combined it with other slipcovers I made in Maharaja Charcoal and Catalina Ticking Black Pearl for her Lake Michigan home. Beautiful!
