Using the outline method creates a very tight slipcover
Fabric Pattern Placement is one of the most important parts of fabricating a slipcover.
Next step is patter placement on the arms and sides.

Not all Slipcovers are created equal!

Sew What! Offers slipcovers that fit as snug as a bug!  You may ask yourself why I can't run into a home store and purchase a ready-made slipcover....   they are relatively inexpensive, easy to obtain, etc.  However, they are usually one size fits all and rarely achieve a tight fit, so you are fussing with them as much as you are enjoying your new look.  

At Sew What! Custom Home Decor, you can choose your fabric and get that snug as a bug fit!    Slipcovers not only protect your furniture, but they give you the flexibility of changing your decor as often as you wish without having to re-upholster.  You can change the whole look of your room in seconds, decorate for the holidays, or just get plain wild and crazy with new clothing for your furniture!  It is time to give that old furniture a new look!

Below is a brief sequence of this method I used when starting my slipcover business 10 years ago.  You can also order the DVD made by Karen Erickson.  I purchased the DVD and played it every time I made a slipcover for the 1st 6 months.  Slipcover Like a Pro

1. Framing the chair by using welt cord.

2. Placement of fabric.

3. Adding the fabric to the arms.

4. Welt cord placement before adding skirt.

5. Add the finishing touch! Viola!
