Study your chair - You don’t need home-decorating experience to design a slipcover. But I do suggest you start by taking a good look at the piece of furniture you want to work on. Side or occasional chairs almost always come with their own distinct personality. And because the slipcover will leave the chair’s back, arms, and legs exposed, it’s nice to relate the slipcover’s style to the chair’s design. Or conversely, it’s fun to deliberately contrast the chair with its cover design, which is a good way to integrate an oddball piece of furniture into your decor.
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.
