Chaise slipcover – There is no need to throw out a robust sofa with worn fabric when you can sew a new chaise slipcover. The project takes less than 2 hours to complete if you have basic sewing skills and require just a few simple supplies available at most hobby or fabric stores. Sewing a sofa cover allows you to choose a fabric that works with the room decor and not put a dent in your budget.
Measure the width of the sofa body from the center of the floor, over the chaise slipcover and over the back to the center of the floor. Measure the sofa’s body length from one arm to the other arm. Increase both measurements by 12 inches for seam allowance and tuck around seat cushions. Measure the sofa side from the floor under the arm, over the top of the arm and stop at the seat cushion. Measure the sofa side width from the front edge under the arm to the back edge. Increase both measurements by 2 inches for seam allowance.
Multiply the measurement chaise slipcover body length by four and add it to the width of the sofa body. Divide the sum by 36 to calculate the yardage of the decorator fabric to buy. Cut a rectangle of fabric using the width and length of the body of the sofa. Cut two rectangles for the arms using the couch side and width measurements. Hang the trunk over the couch to find the right place for arm pieces. Put the arm pieces so they drape over the tops of the arms. Sprint each arm to the trunk with a straight edge. This creates a “T” shaped lid.
