Since the first housewife looked down at her dirty upholstered chaise or chair and shook her head with despair, someone has been making slipcovers. The slipcover first started out as a furniture throw, a roll of matching or contrasting fabric that was simply "thrown over" an upholstered piece of furniture.Modern Sure Fit slipcovers are removable fabric covers that can be slipped over a chair or couch to protect the upholstery wear and tear. Later on slipcovers were hand made by professional seamstresses and upholstery shops. Slipcovers like these were ‘tailored" or custom made and often took a long time to sew and were very expensive to make.
When selecting an Armless Slipcover Sofa, all you have to do is choose the kind and color of fabric you wish to use and the maker will order the fabric. You will be charged for the cost of the fabric as well as the making of the covers, which mainly includes the labor cost. When you are about to order the slipcover for your sofa, you have to first take the measurements. If you are doing it yourself, you should remove the cushions before taking the measurements. You can also call a professional from the interior design firm or store for doing the measurements.
Fit your chair - Making a muslin pattern for your slipcover allows you to refine its design. A muslin is especially helpful for deciding whether you want a snug fit or a looser European style with more ease, as is currently popular (shown in my slipcover examples on these pages). While making a muslin, you can also work out the finishing and closure details and produce a working pattern complete with markings and notes. To make a fitted muslin with a seat, band, and skirt for your chair, follow the steps outlined in the photos below.
The right slipcover increases the beauty of the furniture. They maintain uniformity in all the furniture. The torn part of the furniture can be hidden with the help of a slipcover. They give a new luxurious look to the furniture. They protect the furniture from kids with muddy shoes or pets that shed. A good and right slipcover invites an individual to take rest. They give a professional decorative look. They give more comfortable feeling to the user. They turn inexpensive furniture into expensive furniture.
