If you have small children or pets, you know the wear and tear your furniture is subjected to. Kids spill, get sick, or rub their dirty shoes or hands on your sofa. The pets track in dirt and grime from outside not to mention all the pet hair. It's a wonder your sofas and chairs survive. When you use a furniture slipcover, you are protecting your furniture from all that mess. When your slipcover gets dirty, just remove it toss it in the washer and dryer. Now you have a fresh clean slipcover. It's kind of hard to toss the sofa or chair in the wash. Using furniture slipcovers will extend the life of your furniture for many years.
For over a century slipcovers have been a common household item for furnishing. However, these old slipcovers were often uncomfortable and not very attractive. The modern slipcovers today allow you to make an affordable fashion statement with your furniture. Many of the slipcovers today come in a wide variety of patterns and colors so you can find one to match any design need. Not only that, but today's slipcover fabrics are made from material that is easy to clean.
You just finished moving in and have collapsed on the sofa. But once you are sitting down you realize just how out of place your old sofa looks in your new place. The color is all wrong and the fabric pattern sticks out like a sore thumb. But you just moved in and you still have bills to pay and you can’t afford any new furnishings. But how can you invite anyone over when your sofa looks so bad? This is why a new slipcover for your sofa in the right matching colors with a different fabric can make all the difference in the world.
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.
