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.
Chair slipcover makers were often nicknamed "summer time millionaires" due to the amount of money that could be made in the slipcover industry. These artisans are all almost gone. The few remaining shops and designers that do custom slipcovers often are even more expensive than their predecessors. Another factor to consider besides color is the actual fabric that a chair slipcover can be made from. You can choose either natural fiber fabrics like linen, cotton or ramie. Or work with a synthetic fabric made from acrylic, nylon or polyester. The best fabric is a blend of natural and man-made materials for durabilityFree Web Content, ease of cleaning and shape and fit. As you can see selecting the right slipcover for a chair is not as difficult as you may think. By deciding earlier on what style you can afford to buy: ready-made or tailor-made plus looking closely at your lifestyle; you can choose a chair slip cover that will last for years.
