|The Verner chair from IKEA.|
First of all, let me state for the record that no office chair was harmed in the making of this new cover. The cover could be carefully removed, and the glorious black pleather would be revealed completely intact. Why cover it up in the first place. Pleather, that's why. It was nice working with a brand new chair - I knew IKEA wouldn't let me down when it came to seeing all the pieces in their un-assembled state. Sure 'nough - here's what I had to start with:
Next step was to pin and then sew the back piece on (right sides together), then turn the whole thing right side out.
If you've done everything right, it should be quite a snug fit sliding it down into place - mine was. I then pulled it as tight as I could and pinned the crap out of it before hand stitching it closed.
