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.
Choosing the right slipcover: The slipcover should suit the shape and size of the furniture. It should not be over fitted or loosen to the furniture. They should be semi fitted. A good and right slipcover is stitched well. They should have a loosely constructed structure and shape. They should be made of a good quality of cloth that is comfortable to the human skin. They should not create a burning or itching feeling to the user. They should be inexpensive and durable. They should allow an individual to wash and clean easily.
It is very unlikely that a company will refund the cost purely because of customer measuring error, and it is also unlikely that an improperly measured cover will fit onto the sofa. The company should provide measuring guidelines, which should be followed rigorously. If there are any questionsArticle Search, designers should not hesitate to contact the company in question. They should be happy to provide clarification and guidance for getting the best fit out of the covers.
Engineer closing flaps with overlapping sections of band near the arms and back. Indicate button-and-loop closure placement. Mark matching notches and construction notes on the muslin. Make skirt, creating overlaps to match band overlaps. Mark center of legs for inverted pleat. 7. Take apart, fold seat muslin at center, cut out pattern adding seam allowances. Add seam allowances to band and skirt sections. 8. Finish interior of chair cover with folded up edges and hems (below). Attach button loops to inside, too.
