How To Make Dining Room Chair Covers

A slipcover is assembled or “pin fitted” inside out. If using a fabric with a clear right side, make sure right side is facing in toward the chair. Starting from the top of the chair back, pin front and back pieces together. Pin along the back line of the chair. It’s best to pin the entire top, then alternate pinning a few inches down each side to prevent gaping in the back (Image 1). Put a couple of pleats where the chair back curves (Image 2). Once pinned, make sure fabric lays smooth and is fitted but not tight (Image 3). It should slide off the chair back with little resistance. Cut off excess fabric with sharp scissors (Image 4). Remove from chair and sew along pin line. Remove pins and return slipcover to chair (still inside out).

How To Make Dining Room Chair Covers

Way back in 1994 I made my friend, Pam, simple slipcovers for her dining room chairs.  They became a project in my book Instant Decorating.  Since then I have made so many of these Knotted Chair Back Slipcovers that I don’t even need the directions anymore. I have striped, floral, purple, and now white slipcovers for my dining room chairs.

How To Make Dining Room Chair Covers

I love the dining room slipcovers you made a few years ago. I recently bought at a yard sale 6 dining room chairs, sort of Parsons style but better made with wood frames, and I was told they were custom made. Couldn’t turn them down at only $5.00 each. Do you have an idea for the seats. I can’t get them off, the way they are made – too hard, so need to make some kind of slip cover for them. Love all your ideas. Thanks for sharing. I just subscribed. You are very talented, and thank goodness I found you.
