Decide on the Look of the Slipcover According to the Style of the Room. Some people like slipcovers to form fit against a couch so that you can see every outline of the couch. Other people may prefer the looser fitting slipcover that simply drapes over the furniture and hangs loosely off the couch. One thing to keep in mind is that with the tight fitting slipcover, you may find that you are constantly re-arranging it due to people sitting on it and moving about on it. You may also find that this type of slipcover may rip more easily from being pulled too tight or in a wrong direction.
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.
