homemade couch slipcover for Katie

before:
From 2010-08-29


and after:


this took us about 2 days of sewing, this is my 3rd cover and I like to make the cushions instead of a regular slipcover- I think this looks much nicer. Covering the cushions probably takes the longest. we used heavy home-dec fabric that is way more durable than the chintz that was on there to begin with.
below is close up of the arm back, probably the hardest part with the curve and 3 large pieces that come together, it needs to be tight to prevent it from shifting.

  2. I love this! I have a similar shaped couch that I have been thinking of covering, but I have no idea how to deal with the arms or the curved back. I wish you had more pics or a tutorial. Thanks for inspiring me to keep tring to figure it out.
