You may like to keep several sets of slipcovers to change according to the seasons. Or you could have one set for everyday use and another for special occasions. As well as couch, recliner and wing chair slipcovers for use in the family room or den, there are all sorts of dining room chair slipcovers, which enable you to dress up your everyday dining chairs to impress if entertaining guests, or protect quality upholstery from wear and tear. If you're looking for a way to give your home a makeover without blowing your budget, then some inexpensive slipcovers could be the solution.
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.
In the past slipcovers were only used for sofas. Today, companies supply slipcovers for almost every form of seating furniture. Everything from ottomans to recliners or loveseats to dining room chairs can be helped with the addition of a fashionable slipcover. Slipcovers are an excellent alternative to the expensive cost of refurnishing your house with new seating furniture or reupholstering your old furniture. However, custom slipcovers can still be a bit pricey. So if you want a cheap yet fashionable option you can consider getting a ready made slipcover as a quick and fashionable option to upgrade your old furniture.
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.
