What to look for in a Chair Slipcover. A chair slipcover is a specially designed piece of fabric that is used to cover and protect the original upholstery of a chair. Chair slipcovers can come in many different colors and styles. But the two most basic designs you need to be aware of and understand are the terms: ready-made and tailor-made. A ready-made chair slipcover is a semi-fitted mass-produced covering that can work with a wide variety of chair styles and sizes. Ready-made coverings became very popular in the 1960’s when the cost of making these one-piece coverings became less than the cost of getting them hand tailored. The type of chair slipcover is easily found online or in specialty retail stores.
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.
