Here at Alchemy fine living, located in Santa Ana California, we offer custom slipcovers. All slipcovers are sewn right here in our shop by my mom Connie and I. Each custom slipcover is tailored to fit your furniture perfectly and made exactly to your specifications. We have created slipcovers for sofas, overstuffed chairs, dining chairs, and ottomans. We can create very simple slipcovers with straight clean lines, or we can create a more casual, loose fitted look with a big ruffly skirt.
Photographed below is one of our most recent projects. This slipcover was made from a cotton polyester blend that had almost a linen like appearance. We added a flange in the seam of each removable cushion. We also added cording detail around the arms, back, and where the very full ruffly skirt attaches. To add a bit of whimsy a big bow was added to the back.
Alchemy fine living is a creative business. My mom and I offer furniture painting services, simple upholstery, and custom slipcovers.
We have been painting furniture for clients for over a decade now. The two of us have been sewing our whole lives. We've sewn things like prom dresses and bathing suits, but back in 2008 we decided to focus our seamstress abilities on home decorative items; specifically custom made slipcovers.
I'm Deana, the author of this blog. My mom, Connie, taught me from a young age how to spot a deal at a flea market or a thrift shop. She could always spot the hidden potential of an old, worn out piece of furniture. I learned to sew when I was four years old and all through the years I helped my mom with DIY projects around the house.
In 2008 she & I turned our hobby into a business. We offer furniture painting, upholstery, and sewing services.
