This is my latest office chair slipcover done for an out-of-state customer in Seattle, WA.
The customer sends me a picture of their office chair and I will draw color coded markings for each measurement I will need. She picked out two fabrics- one for the main body of the slipcover and contrast fabric for the piping and the back pleat insert. Then a back closure is chosen(bow, clasp, ties, button flap...). Finally a skirt style (ruffled, pleated, kick pleats...) and length are chosen. If you have a design idea I have not listed above that is no problem. You design it and I can make it.
The seat is secured underneath with velcro straps to insure the seat will stay in place. I pre-wash all fabrics in HOT water and dry on a HOT setting to remove the maximum shrinkage before constructing the slipcover. All seams are serged to prevent raveling.
