If you have small children or pets, you know the wear and tear your furniture is subjected to. Kids spill, get sick, or rub their dirty shoes or hands on your sofa. The pets track in dirt and grime from outside not to mention all the pet hair. It's a wonder your sofas and chairs survive. When you use a furniture slipcover, you are protecting your furniture from all that mess. When your slipcover gets dirty, just remove it toss it in the washer and dryer. Now you have a fresh clean slipcover. It's kind of hard to toss the sofa or chair in the wash. Using furniture slipcovers will extend the life of your furniture for many years.
Take out your sketchbook and try a few design ideas, like those in my drawings above. Or start with the classic seat-top, band, and skirt style as I’ve done for the chair at top left. Sketch different proportions of band width to skirt height, think about pleats or gathers to turn the corners at the legs, and dream up details using piping or other trim. You can even take photos of your chair, then trace your ideas over them. Suit the slipcover to the chair’s style, using the patternmaking process described in the photo-essay. The patternmaking process is the same, regardless of the style you choose.
