Inside Look at an Upholstery Project

Have you ever wanted an inside look at an upholstery project? Wish granted!

To make sure my slipcovers always “fit like a glove” I have to start with very accurate measurements. That’s always the first step. Another important part of the process is choosing the right fabric. There are lots of options for slipcovers, not only in colors or styles, but also in weights of fabric. I always work carefully with my client to be sure we choose the right fabric for their purposes. One example would be if the homeowner has dogs – a more durable fabric works better in that case.

The pictures illustrate the steps I take to cut and sew the fabric and all trims to create the perfect fit for your furniture. In this example, my clients purchases a custom-made swivel chair but didn’t purchase an ottoman at the same time. Later, they found an ottoman on sale at a deep discounted clearance price and I re-upholstered it for them with the matching fabric. Having the ottoman created a more comfortable sitting area. It also acts as an extra seat for larger gatherings.

Think of Sweet Pea’s for the slipcover and light upholstery needs in your home for items like your favorite chair, ottoman, dining room chairs, stool, piano bench, and more.
