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.
When Should you Buy Sofa Slipcovers? Your sofa is a wreck. The seat cushions are awful and the armrests look bad from years of sweaty palms and hair products left behind when you used it as a head rest for afternoon naps. You have done everything you can think of. Steam cleaned, shampooed and vacuumed. While the sofa smells almost brand-new, it is hopelessly stained with dark discoloring that no deep cleaning seems to remove or lighten up. But you can change the entire appearance with one simple sofa slipcover.
Check out the Back - First look at your furniture’s basic design. With a couch, sofa or loveseat you need to notice the back design. A tight-back type has no cushions or pillows on the back. Next is the Attached-Cushion back which has a pillow or padded backstop sewn onto the chairs or couch’s back. The next step up is Multi-Pillow back which has removable cushions (2 or more) the across the back. But be realistic because even the best fitting Sure Fit slipcover may need additional padding or foam underneath to fill in the gaps between the back cushions or to fill out very narrow armrests.
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.
