Choose Cotton or Polyester Blend Slipcovers for High Traffic Areas. If your couches and chairs tend to get a lot of traffic in the family room, your best bet is to pick a slipcover that is cotton or a polyester blend. This is because this type of material will hold up the best when it comes to wear and tear. Although it may wrinkle, it is very simple to run an iron over the slipcovers and the wrinkles come right out. You can find inexpensive cotton and polyester slipcovers as well as higher end cotton 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.
