This is my favorite office chair. I purchased it at Habitat Restore and it is oh so comfy. But oh so ugly. Looks like it needs a makeover.
After making my first office chair slipcover I had some of my hand printed fabric left over. Just enough to cover this chair. This chair is a little different from the typical office chair you find. It does not have any adjustment knob in the back, along with that weird hump they usually have. But even so, it still needed a pleat in the back because the bottom tapers in. The pleat allows it to go on easier.
I complimented my hand printed fabric with a white tone on tone stripe sheeting. I decided not to use any cording, it looks cleaner and simpler. A look that I’m very attracted to these days.
For the skirt I used my 1/2″ Quick Pleater but left the pleats unpressed for a soft look. The tie is threaded through 2 vertical buttonholes just at the edge of the pleat.
I love how soft and sweet this office chair slipcover turned out and I enjoy my favorite sewing chair even more. I hope you like it to.
