French dining chairs

This chair is all curves.  In order to fit the chair smoothly the cover has to have a flat piece at the sides of the back and also for the apron around the seat.  The apron is cut to match the curves on the bottom of the chair with an extra one inch of length to make sure that it covers the wood.

here is a close-up of the seat.  The apron has to extend around to the back to attach with hook & loop fasteners.  Since the fabric is patterned there will not be any extra buttons or trims except for a flat welt in all of the seams.
