What a beautiful job!! RE: cost; I just had a new slipcover made for an overstuffed chair. Labor alone cost $650. RE: the extra duck; how about a new ironing board cover or six? ;-)

Wow, you did a great job. Did you do a price comparison as to how much it would cost to hire someone to do the job? This always makes me feel that it was all worth it.

Thank you so much for you detailed review. I have a couch that needs a slipcover and you have given me the confidence to do it. I would love to know who did the video you mentioned, as that is the best way for me to learn. I will be reading your blog entries for help as soon as I get started.

What a fabulous amazing job you did. I am not a home-dec girl. Intimidating to say the least! But yours turned out GREAT!

Absolutely beautiful!!! The combination with the green pillows is also gorgeous - right up my alley. :) I have sewn a slipcover for my love-seat as well in a nice white-ish fabric I got on sale, and I couldn't agree more that it is VERY rewarding. Thanks for sharing all the photos and steps!

I can't thank you enough for the pictures and explanations as you went along, they're SO helpful. If you can make your loveseat look like this, maybe there's hope for mine yet!
