Video Slipcover Tutorial Series Part 3 & Wing Chair Reveal

Welcome to part three of the video slipcover tutorial series.  First, I’m going to share the “after” picture of the wing chair I used as my example in the video.  Didn’t it turn out great?  It’s currently for sale at the Old Lucketts Store.  I forgot to get a picture of the row of ribbon ties down the back.  They look so good!  Bummer.
I didn’t take a “before” picture of it, so here’s a still from the video.  Everywhere I paused it, I either had my mouth open or a smirk on my face, so I went with the smirk.  Lovely.
If you missed the previous videos, you can view them here…
Part three covers how to position the fabric on the chair and pin fit the back.  I ramble a bit, mainly because I don’t want to edit the videos too much.  I really want you to see how I do something, so it’s easier to replicate.
Here is a full transcript of this video: MMS-Slipcover-Part3
Part four is coming soon!
I also couldn’t resist sharing a sneak peek of something I finished painting today…
Need a hint?
The devil made me do it.
I’m linking this to TDC’s Before and After Party.

  1. Another great tutorial:) I’ve never tried the piping around the edge like that and i really appreciate the way you showed how to do it. It has always intimidated me! The slip cover projects I have in my to-do pile for customers don’t require piping but eventually I’m sure someone will want it.
    You wouldn’t know of a tutorial for reupholstering and using double piping on that would you??

    I was in the middle of the tutorial series, and when I click on part 2, your page says “this video does not exist”….is it somewhere else? I’m so excited about making these!

    Hi! I have watched one of your tutorials previous and made one slip cover but last night I watched the whole series as I have 2 chairs to slipcover. Your tips were awesome about using the hemmed side for the ruffle. I did not put ruffle last time because I thought it might be too hard. The only thing I did not do is the piping but maybe next time I will have the courage to do that too. By the way did I mention I don’t sew? I always wanted to learn but I great up watching my mother, grandmother, and great grandmother sew so I understand the principles of it. I cut it and pin it and have a friend stitch it up for me. I really hate that I did not get to come to Montgomery to the Chapel sale. We were coming and then had to cancel at the last minute. Thanks for sharing your tips and talent.
