Upholstering a chair coastal style is on my someday project list! So I compiled a few great examples of upholstered chairs, followed by a tutorial, and fabric sources.

Then, I found good Upholstering Instructions at Better Homes and Gardens. In a nutshell: Strip the chair of its original fabric and use the pieces as pattern. Then pin the pieces wrong sides out onto the chair. Remove pinned cover and sew it together, with welting reinforcing the seams. Put sewn cover back on the chair. It should fit like a glove!
