Better Choices, Better Décor. Many designers also enjoy using a slipcover because it allows them to express the full range of their designing creativity. When purchasing a sofa from a store, it is often difficult to find the ideal color or pattern combined with the desired framework and structure. Designers are often forced to choose between a perfect couch with the wrong color, or an excellent color and the wrong design style.
A good looking and well fitting sofa slipcover can easily and cheaply update the look of a room. A sofa slipcover can cover up worn or tattered upholstery or help make a mismatched sofa and chair look like that they came off the same factory assembly line. A well designed sofa slipcover in the right color and fabric can demand attention and interaction from everyone who enters the room. A sofa slipcover can help unlock the true decorating potential of your home, since your "style" will no longer be dictated to you by your furniture!
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.
Sure Fit Slipcover Fitting Tips. But slipcovers began to drop in popularity because the early makers of ready-made just didn’t have the technology or design skills to make slipcovers fit properly. We all remember those old slipcovers with all the bags, sags and fabric folds! But reputable companies like Sure Fit slipcovers (hence its name) began to design covers that could be fitted using an easy to adjust system that holds the cover in place. A Sure Fit slipcover is made from fabrics that have enough elasticity to snugly mold the shape of the underlying furniture, yet doesn’t create wrinkles and bumps and lumps. But in order to get the right Sure Fit slipcovers for your couch or chair, you must learn how to match your furniture style to the Sure Fit slipcovers that you want.
