Durable fabric was a must, but reupholstering gave the opportunity to add another element of style. A tailored dressmaker skirt gives the piece more presence than before. The homeowner also had a few yards of fabric left over from another project in the house. It wasn't enough to cover the entire chair so she paired the extra fabric with a neutral brushed cotton for a unique look.
