I've always loved brown paper packages tied up with string and there's nothing like ribbon for dressing up a pretty package. Grosgrain has been my favorite ever since I was a little girl, and I still remember the navy corduroy jumper that I entered in a State Fair competition. I stitched a rainbow of ribbons in a criss crossy pattern all over the front and pockets. It's been raining ribbons around here ever since. Now I choose the very best from Raffit Ribbons in New York. Ribbons are super for adding vertical line and color to slipcovers! Check out your options here:

Here is an old photo of one of my first slipcovers. A bright print with contrast welt and banding at bottom continues to be one of my favorite styles to offer. This one covers an old Ethan Allen barrel wingback and is loosely fitted. The pleat down the center back allows the cover to open up and go over the wide wings. Covered buttons and fabric loops are the closure method. Because the original fabric was a dark plaid, as shown in photo below, a separate undergarment was fashioned of cotton interlining. Just took this cover off the chair so I can switch out to autumn colors. Now I'll need to get the slipcover washed up and ready to pull out next spring!
