Take out your sketchbook and try a few design ideas, like those in my drawings above. Or start with the classic seat-top, band, and skirt style as I’ve done for the chair at top left. Sketch different proportions of band width to skirt height, think about pleats or gathers to turn the corners at the legs, and dream up details using piping or other trim. You can even take photos of your chair, then trace your ideas over them. Suit the slipcover to the chair’s style, using the patternmaking process described in the photo-essay. The patternmaking process is the same, regardless of the style you choose.
Since the first housewife looked down at her dirty upholstered chaise or chair and shook her head with despair, someone has been making slipcovers. The slipcover first started out as a furniture throw, a roll of matching or contrasting fabric that was simply "thrown over" an upholstered piece of furniture.Modern Sure Fit slipcovers are removable fabric covers that can be slipped over a chair or couch to protect the upholstery wear and tear. Later on slipcovers were hand made by professional seamstresses and upholstery shops. Slipcovers like these were ‘tailored" or custom made and often took a long time to sew and were very expensive to make.
