IS IT REALLY A SLIPCOVER?


Sometimes I amazed when I look back at slipcovers I have done.  This, to me, does not even look like a slipcover.  If I wouldn't have made it myself, I'd think the person claiming it was is crazy.  That's the thing about slipcovers--they don't have to be messy or loose fitting.  More than anything else, the look of the finished slipcover is determined by the fabric.  If you use an upholstery fabric that is fairly heavy (like the one above,) the slipcover tends to look a lot more like an upholstered piece rather than a slipcover.  It's totally up to you.  What look do you want in your home?
