Custom-Fit Slipcovers: The Wingback Chair

with Cherie Killilea

  • My customer had several different fabrics with rose and flower motifs and 10 yards of a golden linen that had been given to her. She asked me to make her wingback slipcover to look like a quilt had been thrown on it. She gave me free reign to "play." I used cotton sheeting for the lining. She had a collection of buttons and I suggested they be placed on the back to accent the zipper. I had sewn ribbons together years ago that fit in with the colors and rose motif that accented the back zipper and the foot stool.

I love the back! I have been making slipcovers for dinette chairs, and find that if I do others, I may need to do something in the back to tighten it up some so it doesn't drape/drag. This may be the perfect solution. Thanks for sharing it!
Sewknitcro answered:
Thank you pcampbell, I'm glad you got some inspiration! However, on this chair the decorative cord is only decoration. If you want to make it so the tie will give you the ability to actually tighten, grommets or loops will allow to literally tighten the cord. I hope this will work for you!
