When selecting an Armless Slipcover Sofa, all you have to do is choose the kind and color of fabric you wish to use and the maker will order the fabric. You will be charged for the cost of the fabric as well as the making of the covers, which mainly includes the labor cost. When you are about to order the slipcover for your sofa, you have to first take the measurements. If you are doing it yourself, you should remove the cushions before taking the measurements. You can also call a professional from the interior design firm or store for doing the measurements.
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.
Although some of these restrictions have relaxed in today's upholstery shops, covers seem likely to dominate. Fitted slipcovers are placed over the piece of furniture in moments, cutting down on the excessive time demands of upholstery. In order to have a piece reupholstered, an owner has to submit the order weeks in advance, and it might still face delays. Many decorating-savvy people enjoy the speed and efficiency of a slipcover in comparison. In addition, covers are much more cost effective. They are a fraction of the price charged for typical re-upholstery, and the price won't vary depending on the intricacy of the job. Because upholstery requires that the craftsman tailor his or her design to the form of the piece, it is much more demanding than a simple fitted slipcover.
