This weekend, I enjoyed a relaxing trip to the north Georgia mountains with several other ladies from church. We were blessed with a dusting of snow flakes on Saturday morning which left me longing for a cozy home and my sewing machine. So, tonight I saddled up to it and got to work on the slipcovers.
To maximize my time and energy, IO’m utilizing the hems of the cloth for my slip covers. Tonight, I started making the pleats. Two full lengths of the cloth nearly covers the base of one chair. All in all, I estimate it will take 1.5- 2 dropcloths per chair. That’s a great price for a “new” chair!
The current debate: how high off the floor do I want the herm. Currently, our chairs are open underneath, and it makes the room feel more spacious. However, I don’t want the skirt to have a high-water look. I’m torn.
