I thought I’d never get here!
But now that I am I have to admit I really have absolutely no idea what to do!!! Ha ha ha!
I remember something about leaving little flaps of extra fabric on the back and sides but I can’t figure out just exactly how they get attached.
I will tell you I stared at this chair for a LONG time! Finally I cut a piece of fabric 12 inches wider and roughly 8 inches longer than this rectangle. You can see above that I sewed it then to the excess area from the Inside Back.
My thought here is that I can make a little tuck as it gets pulled to the back of the chair. This will leave excess fabric that gets tucked in and allows the slipcover to ‘Flex’ when a person sits in the chair.
Once again, it’s another brilliantly thought out idea…I’m just trying to figure out a way to execute it!
Next I do the same thing with the sides. I fold over an excess and then sew these to the Inside Arm pieces.
After that once again I have absolutely NO IDEA what I’m supposed to do.
I do know that somewhere I’m supposed to top stitch in what our instructor called a ‘Crotch’…but it’s not what you’re thinking. It’s supposed to be a dart or tuck or something that gets sewn down.
So I make it up! And bring it into the front arm area which will eventually get covered up by the skirt. Problemo resolved! I top stitch this tuck on both sides and now I’m off to figure out the skirt!
Friends, I only have the skirt and the cushion left to do! Whoo Hoo!
