I have has these leather Parsons Chairs for a long time and I really like them. They are comfortable and easy to fit around our dining room table. I just felt like they need to be lightened up, especially after I painted the accent wall dark gray.
I bought some white denim and washed and dried it in order to shrink it. Then I took measurements for the pieces of the slipcovers. I basically cut four pieces. For the first piece I measured the seat back-front.
For the second piece I measured the seat back-back.
For the third piece I measured the seat.
For the last piece I measured the skirt. I used a strip that was 5″ wide.
Next, I pinned the first two pieces right sides together on the chair. This way you get a nice custom fit. After it is pinned, pull it off and sew.
Next, pin the seat piece to the seat back-front (right sides together) and sew.
Nest, pin the skirt to the seat piece (right sides together) and sew.
The last step is to sew a hem around the skirt.
I chose white denim because it is easy to throw in the wash and bleach. I like how it gives the chairs a spring/summer feel. Kind of like white denim jeans for my wardrobe!
They are simple to make and can easily be removed and washed.
