But this particular sofa was in very good condition, a Flexsteel, so good bones! So why not give it a try. The initial fabric was awful (though I didn't think so when I picked it out years ago) but I love the new fabric. Very edgy! and why not?
And though there are some gimpy spots, overall, I think it turned out pretty well. I made it easy on myself and left off the piping and the skirt. I think it actually makes the sofa looks more modern!!
