What are you most proud of? The results of our efforts were as I had pictured. What advice would you give someone starting this project? We used the old covering for a pattern and we were lucky that the pattern repeat in the new fabric was the same as the old. Advice? measure, measure and measure again. If the patterns don't match, you will not be happy with the result. If you are unsure about being able to match patterns, stay away from stripes and plaids, etc.
