Normally I would have used a vintage fabric, but as I needed around two metres and I wanted it to be hard wearing, I went for the vintage look! I bought some Cath Kidston Rose print fabric during her Autumn sale, so it was a bit of a bargain! It was a good weight too.
I made a paper pattern by drawing round the sections of the chair. Cut the pieces from the fabric and then got sewing! It took about an hour from start to finish.
Maybe the frill is a bit much, but as I have used a lot of gingham in the kitchen, I think I can get away with a small feminine flourish!
