I made two chair covers for a wedding.
It was a lot of work because the ruffler attachment didn’t want to work on this slippery fabric.
I tried to use a Simplicity chair cover pattern, but the chair was not the same size.
The wedding hall would not let me borrow the chair to make a pattern, and i forgot to bring pattern paper to make a mock up.
In the end, it didn’t fit 100%, but turned out okay.
The material is see through, so it is backed with white muslin on the seat and the top, and the skirt is double.
The skirt ruffling process was tedious.
