Reupholstering A 1930's Armchair In Cottage Style

A Vintage Cottage Style Chair That Is Comfy

This 1930's armchair chair had become tired and dreary so Claire who blogs at Vintage Home asked her friend Nikki who blogs at Nostalgia at the Stone House
to make a slip cover for the chair. Claire writes that she is always changing her mind about colors, patterns and styles so a chair that is eclectic is just right for her.

According to Claire: "There is such a lovely variety of fabrics here; old Sanderson linen; 50s roses cotton; French florals; rosey barkcloth - all stitched together in a charming patchwork!"

Is this chair a treasure? Has anyone tried this?
