Upholstery Update- I finished the Chaise!

I have finally finished the chase, that Chris started last semester.  It took a lot of sewing and three classes of time, but it is done.  When I started with it Chris had done all the work but he had left off with the outsides of the arms, the back, and the skirts to finish.  I started with the outsides of the arms and then finished the back. This involved sewing welting cord, stapling with cardboard, and using this evil stuff called ply grip.

The next step involved sewing more welting cord, sewing the skirts, and attaching the skirts. As sewing is not really what Chris does, I am secretly glad I got to take over!

Now for the before and after!
