Slipcovered Armchair Rocker
This is a big comfortable armchair rocker
designed to be covered with a slipcover.
The chair is upholstered in a white medium weight cotton, and was purchased originally with a fitted slipcover.
This new slipcover replaces the original worn out cover.
The arms have a cover that allows
the style of the chair to be seen.
The cover is held with velcro on the underside of
the arms, and tucks in down beside the cushion,
keeping it well in place.
The back of the cover is held closed with velcro
on both sides, allowing for easy removal.
The back of the chair (front of the back) has a cover
that extends down to the cushion and tucks well
into the sides.
It is held in place with hooks at the top end.
The wing shown with tucks in the fabric to fit
around the curve and into the piping.
Reupholstered Wing Chair
A comfortable well made older style chair.
Arm covers and a cover for the top of the back were
made from leftover fabric and lined on the back.
In the case of the arms, there was not enough fabric
to make the covers stripes going the same way
as the underlying fabric.
The arm covers are made so as to be able to see
the front of the arm ....
.... and held in place ....
....with velcro on the underside of the arm....
.... and also kept in place on the inside of the arm with a tab tucking down past the cushion into the deck/arm joint.
If I had not been short of fabric, I would have made the tab
the full width of the arm cover.
The cover for the back of the chair is held in place
with two tabs ....
.... that are attached with hooks
sewn onto the back of the chair.
