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.
"Drape" a muslin pattern - Have on hand pieces of muslin large enough to accommodate each pattern piece needed for your chair slipcover. Position the chair on the floor or on a table so that you can work comfortably. Smooth the fabric over the seat; pin folds, ripples, and puckers into darts where needed. Mark the centerline from back to front, then work on one-half of the chair. Trace a stitching line from the chair seat, mark around the arms and back, cut out with a seam allowance, and clip corners. Use strips of muslin to make bands, positioning and pinning them to the seat.
