Making a Cover
Measure the chair. Furniture fabric is cut larger than other fabrics, so take your measurements to the store. Note the length and width of the backrest, as well as the depth of the seat. You need enough material to drape over the dining chair slip covers and backrest, with the back edges sewn together. Alternatively, you can drape a sheet over the chair, fit the pin so desired, and then measure the needle area, making an extra 1/2 inch for the seams.
Hang fabric upholstery over the Presidency. Pin the rear edges of the fabric together and verify that the pattern (if any) is centered or arranged in an attractive manner on the chair. Remove from the chair and sew the rear edges together with a narrow seam so that the fit of the chair is kept relatively tight. Check the fit of your chair, and add a fabric tie if desired, for visual impressions and to secure furniture covers. Cut two pieces of the material long enough to make an attractive bow and attach them to the dining chair slip covers so that they tie behind the back of the chair. Finish by sewing a narrow hem or skirt to the bottom of the cover.
