The sash is cut into a T shape. The top of the T is the flap that comes down over the back of the chair. The sash is placed right side out on the inside of the back of the chair. The flap is hung over the back, then the two long ends are wrapped around the back and tied.

The rufles are added later.

@lilpetals:  You can swag any fabric that is soft enough and lightweight enough. You just donèt want heavy or stiff fabric or you wonèt be able to get those fluid lines. I usually go to the clearance area of the fabric store and see what is available. Often the lighter weight fabric is placed over a standard weight tablecloth so that there are no bare spots where the swagging lifts the fabric up.

The fabric for the swag comes from extra length in your pic. You just lift up the bottom at the corner to where you want it to be, then accordian pleat the fabric to the top. Pin it all in place. Do the same to the other side. Make sure you have the same number of pleats on each side and each swag.

Your pic also has a topper that is made to fit tight to the table top. You can do this with a rectangular piece of fabric. Place it on the table right side of the fabric down. Fold the fabric to make the right angle seam on each corner, pin and sew the seam. then turn the cloth right side up on the top of the table.

One way to do it is to gather the swag and wrap a pipe cleaner of the same color around the fabric. Twist it tight. Make sure to buy the long pipe cleaners. Also make sure the end of the pipe cleaner are placed to the back of the swag.

Place a large safety pin under the base layer table cloth bringing it through to catch the pipe cleaner on the swagged fabric, back through the table cloth and close the pin.
