The grande dame sofa sat neglected for a week or so. Day three and four and finally I could return to this so important project. I fitted and pined, and sewed the cover for this elegant girl. Yards of fabric pooled around my sewing machine. Her new dress taking shape. This was the most demanding part of the project. Like a perfectly fitted dress the sofa demanded darts and tucks to emphasize her graceful form.
She must look lovely from every point of view. Attention to detail is so important. The project is almost complete.
The next step is to make the cushion covers. Plump them out. Give the sofa a well-endowed look.
The slip cover chronicles …. to be continued.
