If the design on this slipcover didn't line up perfectly it would be the first thing you noticed about the chair. With the entire repeating pattern flowing from the top to bottom and side to side your eye can take in the whole chair and even a super bold fabric is easy to look at.
Not going to lie, this is tricky. Especially tricky since I pin fitted it in its home, not in my work space AND there was literally just enough fabric due to the 27" repeat. I rolled the fabric out over the chair with cushions in place to mark the pattern placement, then pin fitted the slipcover on half, right side out and took careful measurements to get a perfectly symmetrical result. As tailored slipcovers go, this one is a beauty.
Here's a photo of it before the slipcover- perfect condition but the fabric just didn't work in the new space.
