Since the first housewife looked down at her dirty upholstered chaise or chair and shook her head with despair, someone has been making slipcovers. The slipcover first started out as a furniture throw, a roll of matching or contrasting fabric that was simply "thrown over" an upholstered piece of furniture.Modern Sure Fit slipcovers are removable fabric covers that can be slipped over a chair or couch to protect the upholstery wear and tear. Later on slipcovers were hand made by professional seamstresses and upholstery shops. Slipcovers like these were ‘tailored" or custom made and often took a long time to sew and were very expensive to make.
Study your chair - You don’t need home-decorating experience to design a slipcover. But I do suggest you start by taking a good look at the piece of furniture you want to work on. Side or occasional chairs almost always come with their own distinct personality. And because the slipcover will leave the chair’s back, arms, and legs exposed, it’s nice to relate the slipcover’s style to the chair’s design. Or conversely, it’s fun to deliberately contrast the chair with its cover design, which is a good way to integrate an oddball piece of furniture into your decor.
