new chaise slipcover & lined drapes

I was contacted by a blog reader who wanted me to make a slipcover for her newly acquired chaise after seeing my couch slipcover.
It was a simple clean line chaise that is just perfect for recovering, which allows many more years of use. It was just in another state and I couldn't use it to measure on.
The only thing that made this do-able was the old slipcover that was already on the chaise was removable for me to use as a pattern. After the old cover was shipped to me, I was able to take each piece of the cover apart and remake it in the new fabric.

Here is a picture of the chaise before in it's pink/red cover.

It looks lovely doesn't it? Makes me want to curl up with a book and a blanket.
At first I wondered why it needed to be recovered looking at the photo. Then I got the pink/red cover in the mail and saw the worn out spots and realized why. Here is a close up of the fabric that was on the chaise originally and the denim used for the new cover.

Here is the final product in a Khaki color denim. I was so excited to see photos of it on the chaise and that it fit nicely. I mentioned the great deal on the fabric HERE.

Also requested, were some lined drapes to fit her huge window and a couple pillows to coordinate. The fabric she chose was beautiful, Waverly, Stripe Ensemble-Robins Egg.
