Slipcovering is a really valuable skill. When I tell someone I know how to slipcover, they immediately follow with a list of furniture in their home that could use a good cover, and when can I start? I tend to keep it a secret because I don't want to accidentally start a full time business.
Dressmakers draft custom fit dress "muslins" that can be modified and sewn up many ways. If you have experience following a sewing pattern, creating a custom slipcover pattern is a good next step. On September 7, please join me at Fiber College for Slipcover Making for a Small Chair. Learn to make a muslin/pattern for your dining room chairs, folding chairs, even those white plastic outdoor chairs. Design a pattern that can be used again and again, and bring new life to your old chairs.
