When I purchased the chair, I did not realize the the way it was padded would mean that I would have to sew the fabric pieces directly on the chair padding -- and I thought this would be a quick project! I learned to do the 'ladder stitch' for the upholstery on you-tube, practiced it a few times, and then away I went. It's not perfect, but I am proud of the stitching. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Always make sure that your padding is in good condition before you purchase a 2nd hand or antique chair. Don't be afraid to mix up styles (e.g. Victorian with retro fabric) because you can create something unexpectedly wonderful!
