Almost every house has one….the favorite chair. Sometimes it’s a recliner placed strategically in front of the entertainment center. While in other homes it a nice, deep armchair just made for reading books placed under a sunny window. But it doesn’t matter what your favorite chair’s style is if it is covered with pet hair, or badly stained from food accidents, or has prematurely darkened armrests caused by sweat or body oils. No matter what cleaners you use or how often you clean it, your favorite chair has long lost its good looks. You may have heard that you can use a chair slipcover to hide away its tattered and worn upholstery while protecting it from further damage. But just what things should you look for when selecting slipcovers for chairs?
There are many reasons why people are considering slipcovers. If you have young children or pets in your household you know how difficult it can be to keep furniture clean. Slipcovers are an excellent way to protect your furniture from soiling and everyday use by kids and pets. By purchasing slipcovers you have the great advantage of buying on the cheap any pattern and even any type of furniture from flea markets and yard sales then once you go home just throw a simple slipcover over it this will allow you to match the seating to the existing décor in your house, brilliant eh!
There are a lot of households that exhibit worn out and boring couches in their living rooms. These furniture sets may be a bit new but their unattended nature makes them look too dull and indeed very aged. There are several ways wherein the beauty of these sofas can be maintained. One of which is through the use of the Futon Slipcovers.
Note that the band that wraps around the chair below the seat often eliminates the need for a lot of darts or tucks and acts as a smooth vertical transition from the seat to the skirt. The number of overlapping closures needed in the band and skirt depends on the chair’s anatomy. Each above-the-seat element, such as a back and arms, needs a separate opening. Allow enough overlap in the closure to ensure a smooth fit with no gaps in the skirt (see the sewing instructions below). The skirt will need pleats at the legs if they splay out from the chair, but instead of making these pleats in the muslin, just mark where they’ll meet at the center of the legs.
