Sew a chair-seat slipcover - Stitch darts in chair seat. RSs together, sew facings to cutout openings, trim seam allowances (s.a.s), turn to WS, and press. Make piping or use purchased trim. Sew piping to top and bottom of bands, trimming the cord from piping at seams. Turn under ends of bands. Topstitch. RSs together, sew top edge of bands to outer edges of chair seat. Finish skirt hem. Fold pleats where marked. Baste. Turn under side edges of skirt. Topstitch. RSs together, stitch skirt to bottom of band. Topstitch ends of skirt and band in one step. Sew button loops and buttons or other closures. Put slipcover on chair, sit, and relax. I do suggest making a pleated muslin for your chair if the legs splay dramatically and you’re unsure how deep to make the pleats. Make any other notes and marks on the muslin that will help you later on to match and sew the pieces.
The right slipcover increases the beauty of the furniture. They maintain uniformity in all the furniture. The torn part of the furniture can be hidden with the help of a slipcover. They give a new luxurious look to the furniture. They protect the furniture from kids with muddy shoes or pets that shed. A good and right slipcover invites an individual to take rest. They give a professional decorative look. They give more comfortable feeling to the user. They turn inexpensive furniture into expensive furniture.
Buy the Appropriate Size Slipcover. If you find a slipcover that you really like but it is not quite big enough for the size of your couch, do not try to use it anyways. If you use too small of slipcover on a couch or chair, it will end up looking too tight and you will most likely be able to see parts of the couch peeking out from under the slipcover. Also, don't use a slipcover that is too large for a furniture piece. This will make the furniture look very sloppy and unpolished. Be sure to measure your furniture before you look for a slipcover to ensure the proper fit.
