Fitted slipcovers make such dilemmas largely irrelevant. With a cover, it becomes possible to change the color at a whim without the major expense of re-upholstery. Covers also give an added benefit of protection to new and old couches alike. Particularly if a durable fabric is chosen, the wear and tear upon the couch itself is stopped by the protective cover. Instead of having to replace or re-upholster, maintenance is as simple as changing out the fabric.
Prepare a muslin pattern - Once you’ve completely pinned and fitted the muslin on the chair, stand back and take a look. How do the proportions look? How about the location of the band’s overlapping closures? If your eye is satisfied, unpin the muslin from the chair, separate the components, and lay them flat. Use a French curve and a straightedge to fine-tune the seamlines, darts, and other markings. Add seam allowances to the seat, band, and skirt. Add the fabric needed for the inverted pleats (they should be at least 2 in. deep), along with hem allowances to the skirt pattern.
For over a century slipcovers have been a common household item for furnishing. However, these old slipcovers were often uncomfortable and not very attractive. The modern slipcovers today allow you to make an affordable fashion statement with your furniture. Many of the slipcovers today come in a wide variety of patterns and colors so you can find one to match any design need. Not only that, but today's slipcover fabrics are made from material that is easy to clean.
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!
