A ready-made slipcover for a sofa will have not give your old furnishings a new lease on life but can save you hundreds of dollars in cleaning bills and replacement costs. A properly selected sofa slipcover can help quickly give your home a fresh and clean, new image without spending a ton of money on a new sofa. Sofa slipcovers come in a wide choice of fabrics (both natural and man-made), an array of color schemes to match most styling preferences and a host of different patterns that fit in most any décor.
Of course, there may be circumstances where re-upholstering or buying new furniture is warranted. However, in the majority of cases, using a slipcover is a cost-effective and very easy way to get the same look without the hassle. The only difficulty with fitted slipcovers is improper measurement. Be certain that all measurements are completely accurate before sending anything in to the company.
To sew the slipcover for the muslin pattern, follow the steps in the drawing above. Finishing the details on a slipcover are the same as for garment construction. Hems look nice when invisibly sewn by and or topstitched on a machine. Buttons and loops work nicely for closures, as do heavy snaps or Velcro. And you can accessorize your chair with a pillow or two, using leftover or complimentary fabric.
Engineer closing flaps with overlapping sections of band near the arms and back. Indicate button-and-loop closure placement. Mark matching notches and construction notes on the muslin. Make skirt, creating overlaps to match band overlaps. Mark center of legs for inverted pleat. 7. Take apart, fold seat muslin at center, cut out pattern adding seam allowances. Add seam allowances to band and skirt sections. 8. Finish interior of chair cover with folded up edges and hems (below). Attach button loops to inside, too.
