I've been trying to get a good clear picture of my finished slip cover for days now. It has been dark and slushy outside, but this morning a random burst of sunlight had me running for my camera. I did my best.
And all because I was shamefully proud to show this off.
OK. I can admit it. I am SOOOooooo happy with this!
Overall, it didn't give me too much trouble. Well. Except for that last seam. That innocent looking seam, that went over the arm and around to the back. It was rather tricky because of that arm-bulge that stuck out at the side. I just could not wrap my brain (or the fabric) around that behemoth shape while trying to fit and pin it in the reversed position.
I fiddled with it every-which-way for most of the afternoon until I finally realized that all I had to do was sew a few tucks to get the curve I needed to hug that shape.
Sometimes the obvious isn't so obvious when you are nose to nose with a thing. But it's done! Insert: Sigh of relief.
Now I'm ready to grab a cuppa and lounge and delve into the latest issue of Marie Claire Idees, compliments of Biscuit Bear (in France), who was kind enough to do a little magazine swaparoo with me.
