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.
Other than providing the perfect protection for your armless sofas, the armless slipcover sofa also offers enhancement in the design. From the color, patter, design and texture of the material to its size and measurements, you can have all the little attributes customized to get the perfect made to order slipcover for your armless sofa. If you want to purchase a slipcover for your sofa, you can order it to be made for the sofa frame and you can coordinate the covers of the cushions accordingly with the fabric, design and texture of the slipcover. Whether you are looking for an ultra chic casual appearance for your sofa or a more traditional and classic one, you can have any fabric for your slipcover.
Note that the band that wraps around the chair below the seat often eliminates the need for a lot of darts or tucks and acts as a smooth vertical transition from the seat to the skirt. The number of overlapping closures needed in the band and skirt depends on the chair’s anatomy. Each above-the-seat element, such as a back and arms, needs a separate opening. Allow enough overlap in the closure to ensure a smooth fit with no gaps in the skirt (see the sewing instructions below). The skirt will need pleats at the legs if they splay out from the chair, but instead of making these pleats in the muslin, just mark where they’ll meet at the center of the legs.
Of course, choosing the fabric for your chair is also part of the fun. Fabric that you love but might not want to wear now becomes fair game for your furniture. Although dressmaking fabrics can work fine for a slipcover, upholstery fabric is made for the job and will stand up to lots of use and abuse. For your first project, choose a fabric that’s not too heavy, dense, or loosely woven, so that it will be easy to work with. If you want a washable slipcover, be sure to preshrink the fabric by running it through the washing machine.
