Look at the Seat - Now you need to look at the seating cushions. Most chairs or couches have some standard shaped seats: squares, rectangles or blocks with curves at the back or "T-shape" tips at the front. Sure Fit slipcovers come in a variety of styles from a one piece, a two-piece with a separate seat cover or a three-piece with separate covers for the couch base, seat cushion and back. Of course there are other ready-made cover vendors other than the Sure Fit slipcover company but you get what you pay for. So if you want slipcovers that are semi-custom fitted, washable and come in a wide selection of patterns, colors and styles than you really can’t do better than Sure Fit slipcovers.
Prepare a muslin pattern - Once you’ve completely pinned and fitted the muslin on the chair, stand back and take a look. How do the proportions look? How about the location of the band’s overlapping closures? If your eye is satisfied, unpin the muslin from the chair, separate the components, and lay them flat. Use a French curve and a straightedge to fine-tune the seamlines, darts, and other markings. Add seam allowances to the seat, band, and skirt. Add the fabric needed for the inverted pleats (they should be at least 2 in. deep), along with hem allowances to the skirt pattern.
There are a lot of households that exhibit worn out and boring couches in their living rooms. These furniture sets may be a bit new but their unattended nature makes them look too dull and indeed very aged. There are several ways wherein the beauty of these sofas can be maintained. One of which is through the use of the Futon Slipcovers.
From a practical standpoint, you may want to use slipcovers to match a room to the season. Or perhaps you’d like to simulate an upholstered look, either temporarily (while you decide on larger issues of your decor) or as a final design. (For some ideas, see Dress up your chair.) In any case, I’d like to show you just how easy it is to breathe fresh air into your home or apartment with the simplest of slipcovering projects: a seat cover for a beloved or interesting side chair. And for those of you who are new to sewing, don’t worry. Making a chair cover is an ultraeasy way to practice basic sewing skills. Combine sumptuous fabrics, exotic closures, outrageous trims, different pleat treatments, or even your favorite embellishments.
