You can most certainly find what looks to be a trim and add it to the chair with tulle.  It looks pretty.  Good luck!

@dressedinlovexo:  The sash needs to be a T shape so some of it hangs down the back of the chair and you have the other two ends to wrap around the back of the chair. Then attch the ruffle.

You can make the T easily using two regular sashes. There are a couple of ways to do that.

1. Fold one to the length you need from the top of the back of the chair to puddle on the ground. Centre it in a T shape on the other sash and stitch it in place.

  like this only the sides re longer and the upright part shorter

2. If you want a no sew project, lay one sash over the back of the chair so one end puddles on the floor. Wrap the other sash around the sides of the chair and tie in the back. This will hold the first sash in place along with the pins that you use to attach the ruffles.

@dressedinlovexo:  Try it at home with the no sew. I’m all for saving work.

If you do sew them together, they do need more careful folding and packing so they don’t get all rumpled and wrinkled.
