Construction is easy - The process of sewing a slipcover uses the familiar techniques of garment sewing. Sewing darts, facings, pleats, and piping are basic skills that are certainly easier to do on a simple slipcover than, say, a jacket. Sewing hems, topstitching seams, and creating closures are terrific practice for more complex projects. Clip and notch curves in their seam allowances, as you would in garment sewing. Pressing rules apply to slipcover construction, too. Press open seam allowances as you finish them, and press pleats carefully to create crisp edges.
Fit your chair - Making a muslin pattern for your slipcover allows you to refine its design. A muslin is especially helpful for deciding whether you want a snug fit or a looser European style with more ease, as is currently popular (shown in my slipcover examples on these pages). While making a muslin, you can also work out the finishing and closure details and produce a working pattern complete with markings and notes. To make a fitted muslin with a seat, band, and skirt for your chair, follow the steps outlined in the photos below.
