Take out your sketchbook and try a few design ideas, like those in my drawings above. Or start with the classic seat-top, band, and skirt style as I’ve done for the chair at top left. Sketch different proportions of band width to skirt height, think about pleats or gathers to turn the corners at the legs, and dream up details using piping or other trim. You can even take photos of your chair, then trace your ideas over them. Suit the slipcover to the chair’s style, using the patternmaking process described in the photo-essay. The patternmaking process is the same, regardless of the style you choose.
Fitted Slipcovers Or New Furniture? In the old economy, it was not uncommon to simply replace a sofa if it didn't match a new design or motif being integrated into a home. In the new, more budget-conscious era, designers are looking for ways to avoid replacing expensive pieces like sofas and chairs. It can cost thousands for a truly excellent sofa. That sofa will last for years, so there is no reason to replace it if it's still in working condition. A slipcover can be used to breathe new life into any piece of furniture.
