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.
Fitted slipcovers make such dilemmas largely irrelevant. With a cover, it becomes possible to change the color at a whim without the major expense of re-upholstery. Covers also give an added benefit of protection to new and old couches alike. Particularly if a durable fabric is chosen, the wear and tear upon the couch itself is stopped by the protective cover. Instead of having to replace or re-upholster, maintenance is as simple as changing out the fabric.
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.
Stretch slipcovers are also available for other rooms. For example, dining chair slipcovers can be purchased to protect good quality upholstery from food or drink spills. They come in various colors and patterns. Many people like to have a set of luxury covers to add a touch of elegance to dinner parties or special occasions. Folding and kitchen coverings are widely available too. If you're tired of the appearance of your home, fitting some new slipcovers is an easy way to give an entire room a makeover without the inconvenience of decorating. A new slipcover can enhance the look and feel of a whole room, with minimal fuss, and can be changed whenever you fancy a new image!
