What materials did you use? Upholstery Fabrics purchased about 5 years ago.

amazing.........WOW ! How long have you been sewing, and how long did this project take you ?

I used Linda Maynard's fitting class first and a muslin to work on the fit. After that I think it was about 2 weeks off and on. I've sewed a lot beginning in the mid 70's then stopped a few years ago. I needed to begin again. Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate them.

What kind of fabric did you use? Is it wool?

It is 2 different upholstery fabrics - not light weight - perhaps medium weight. I'm drawn to circles...

I love yours, especially because yours does not lay in wrinkles. I think I am going to have to line mine to get the look that I want. I hope that will take care of it.
