When selecting an Armless Slipcover Sofa, all you have to do is choose the kind and color of fabric you wish to use and the maker will order the fabric. You will be charged for the cost of the fabric as well as the making of the covers, which mainly includes the labor cost. When you are about to order the slipcover for your sofa, you have to first take the measurements. If you are doing it yourself, you should remove the cushions before taking the measurements. You can also call a professional from the interior design firm or store for doing the measurements.
You may like to keep several sets of slipcovers to change according to the seasons. Or you could have one set for everyday use and another for special occasions. As well as couch, recliner and wing chair slipcovers for use in the family room or den, there are all sorts of dining room chair slipcovers, which enable you to dress up your everyday dining chairs to impress if entertaining guests, or protect quality upholstery from wear and tear. If you're looking for a way to give your home a makeover without blowing your budget, then some inexpensive slipcovers could be the solution.
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.
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.
