- This part of the patio is not level.
- The slipcover needs to be rotated 180 degrees. There were some distortion from wear on this ottoman, so I made a template for the top, & this is the wrong way, obviously. The slipcover drapes much better when it's on correctly.
- See above: it was after 11:00 am and over 100 degrees when I took these photos, so I did not take the time to fiddle around with changing the cover or doing anything else. It was too hot to stay outside. (Unless that included a bathing suit & pool.)
- The skirt really does lay nicely, and the piping shows up well.
The top is made from recycled jeans, and the rest from fabrics that I had available. If I were to do this again, these are the changes that I would make:
- The denim is great, but use decorator weight fabric for the rest. I lined the cotton fabrics on this, but it's not quite enough. Maybe use an iron-on interfacing if you want to use lighter cotton fabrics?
- Even though there is a distinction of the "top" and "bottom" of the ottoman in the original, I would make the top band part narrower and the skirt part wider. For this particular ottoman, I think that would work well.
