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!
