Re-Upholstery Versus A Slipcover - In the past, the go-to option for a tired old sofa was a complete renewal with upholstery. The process was time and money intensive, and often required the customer to struggle through demands placed by the owner of the upholstery shop. Many such shops limited the selection available to customers, particularly if they were attached to a fabric shop. If so, it was common to require that the upholstery fabric be purchased from the related shop, or else the upholstery provider wouldn't use it.
Sew a chair-seat slipcover - Stitch darts in chair seat. RSs together, sew facings to cutout openings, trim seam allowances (s.a.s), turn to WS, and press. Make piping or use purchased trim. Sew piping to top and bottom of bands, trimming the cord from piping at seams. Turn under ends of bands. Topstitch. RSs together, sew top edge of bands to outer edges of chair seat. Finish skirt hem. Fold pleats where marked. Baste. Turn under side edges of skirt. Topstitch. RSs together, stitch skirt to bottom of band. Topstitch ends of skirt and band in one step. Sew button loops and buttons or other closures. Put slipcover on chair, sit, and relax. I do suggest making a pleated muslin for your chair if the legs splay dramatically and you’re unsure how deep to make the pleats. Make any other notes and marks on the muslin that will help you later on to match and sew the pieces.
