The in-laws have just left and now sitting in your living room is the world’s ugliest sofa! What were you thinking when you agreed to take if off their hands? Now the poor thing is cluttering up your space and it doesn’t match anything you own. The style is wrong, the fabric is homely and the color is….well, you aren’t sure what the original color was. Still you can quickly and inexpensively "makeover" this "dawg" using sofa slipcovers.
Construction is easy - The process of sewing a slipcover uses the familiar techniques of garment sewing. Sewing darts, facings, pleats, and piping are basic skills that are certainly easier to do on a simple slipcover than, say, a jacket. Sewing hems, topstitching seams, and creating closures are terrific practice for more complex projects. Clip and notch curves in their seam allowances, as you would in garment sewing. Pressing rules apply to slipcover construction, too. Press open seam allowances as you finish them, and press pleats carefully to create crisp edges.
