Check out the Back - First look at your furniture’s basic design. With a couch, sofa or loveseat you need to notice the back design. A tight-back type has no cushions or pillows on the back. Next is the Attached-Cushion back which has a pillow or padded backstop sewn onto the chairs or couch’s back. The next step up is Multi-Pillow back which has removable cushions (2 or more) the across the back. But be realistic because even the best fitting Sure Fit slipcover may need additional padding or foam underneath to fill in the gaps between the back cushions or to fill out very narrow armrests.
Look at the Seat - Now you need to look at the seating cushions. Most chairs or couches have some standard shaped seats: squares, rectangles or blocks with curves at the back or "T-shape" tips at the front. Sure Fit slipcovers come in a variety of styles from a one piece, a two-piece with a separate seat cover or a three-piece with separate covers for the couch base, seat cushion and back. Of course there are other ready-made cover vendors other than the Sure Fit slipcover company but you get what you pay for. So if you want slipcovers that are semi-custom fitted, washable and come in a wide selection of patterns, colors and styles than you really can’t do better than Sure Fit slipcovers.
Of course, there may be circumstances where re-upholstering or buying new furniture is warranted. However, in the majority of cases, using a slipcover is a cost-effective and very easy way to get the same look without the hassle. The only difficulty with fitted slipcovers is improper measurement. Be certain that all measurements are completely accurate before sending anything in to the company.
Fit your chair - Making a muslin pattern for your slipcover allows you to refine its design. A muslin is especially helpful for deciding whether you want a snug fit or a looser European style with more ease, as is currently popular (shown in my slipcover examples on these pages). While making a muslin, you can also work out the finishing and closure details and produce a working pattern complete with markings and notes. To make a fitted muslin with a seat, band, and skirt for your chair, follow the steps outlined in the photos below.
