There are a lot of households that exhibit worn out and boring couches in their living rooms. These furniture sets may be a bit new but their unattended nature makes them look too dull and indeed very aged. There are several ways wherein the beauty of these sofas can be maintained. One of which is through the use of the Futon Slipcovers.
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.
If you want to change up the theme or style of your living room, you don't have to buy all new couches and chairs to match the look of the room. Instead, slipcovers make a great way to change the style and colors of a piece of furniture quickly and easily so that it can fit in with the décor of the new family room. If you are going to be looking for new slipcovers for your family room furniture, here are some helpful hints to help you.
Prepare a muslin pattern - Once you’ve completely pinned and fitted the muslin on the chair, stand back and take a look. How do the proportions look? How about the location of the band’s overlapping closures? If your eye is satisfied, unpin the muslin from the chair, separate the components, and lay them flat. Use a French curve and a straightedge to fine-tune the seamlines, darts, and other markings. Add seam allowances to the seat, band, and skirt. Add the fabric needed for the inverted pleats (they should be at least 2 in. deep), along with hem allowances to the skirt pattern.
