I love the idea of the buttons in the back. It is a wonderful example to aspire to!

That looks absolutely amazing, great work!

Wow! Incredible work! So slick and fitted! I didn't know that was possible for a wingback.

Charlotte, I'm so impressed. I'm thinking about re-covering 2 wing chairs, and I didn't know slipcovers could look this good. Would love to hear how you got the "wings" to look so smooth--how did you do the crevice of each wing?

The crevices were actually the big "cheat" that made it easy. You can stuff any excess fabric in there. The magic for me was Cherie's technique of using the cording to give structure. Step by step, I'd get my pieces positioned just so, place the cording just so, and then use that magic cording foot. After an individual step was complete it would go back on the chair to have the next logical piece positioned.
