With proper material, any cover can give an outdated sofa a new look. Recession-savvy decorators are repurposing and reusing more than ever before, inventing creative new ways to use things like fitted slipcovers in decorating schemes. And best of all, they are able to do so at less expense, better results, and added protection for years to come. Using a cover actually increases the overall life of furniture, making it a smart investment decision.
Construction is easy - The process of sewing a slipcover uses the familiar techniques of garment sewing. Sewing darts, facings, pleats, and piping are basic skills that are certainly easier to do on a simple slipcover than, say, a jacket. Sewing hems, topstitching seams, and creating closures are terrific practice for more complex projects. Clip and notch curves in their seam allowances, as you would in garment sewing. Pressing rules apply to slipcover construction, too. Press open seam allowances as you finish them, and press pleats carefully to create crisp edges.
