White Denim Slipcover for Vintage Chaise

Vintage Chaise LoungeHeavy white denim to the rescue once again.  It’s one of my favorite slipcover fabrics for covering tattered upholstery.  It does a great job at hiding imperfections.

For this project I used a 12 oz. 100% cotton denim from Field’s Fabrics.  I gave it a hot wash and dry to work out the shrinkage and beef up the cloth.

To make the heavy denim marry with the dainty design of this old piece I styled the slipcover to have a simple, substantial look & feel. I piped around the front arms, added a tailored skirt, plumped up the cushions with new batting and created one-piece arms.  Looking good!

  1. Just lovely! And wasn’t that vintage fabric lovely in its day, too!

  2. Holly, I was hesitant to slipcover it because I love that old floral fabric so much! Oh yeah, I bet it was a beauty way back when.
