Of course, choosing the fabric for your chair is also part of the fun. Fabric that you love but might not want to wear now becomes fair game for your furniture. Although dressmaking fabrics can work fine for a slipcover, upholstery fabric is made for the job and will stand up to lots of use and abuse. For your first project, choose a fabric that’s not too heavy, dense, or loosely woven, so that it will be easy to work with. If you want a washable slipcover, be sure to preshrink the fabric by running it through the washing machine.

The few remaining shops and designers that do custom slipcovers often are even more expensive than their predecessors.

Or work with a synthetic fabric made from acrylic, nylon or polyester. The best fabric is a blend of natural and man-made materials for durabilityFree Web Content, ease of cleaning and shape and fit. As you can see selecting the right slipcover for a chair is not as difficult as you may think. By deciding earlier on what style you can afford to buy: ready-made or tailor-made plus looking closely at your lifestyle; you can choose a chair slip cover that will last for years.
