I used a total of 2 and 1/2 yards of fabric and four covered buttons per chair.
The first step in creating a slipcover is to measure the width and depth of your chair.¬† I started with the front side back and added about two inches extra all the way around. Next measure the backside of the chair and divide in half then add approximately 3 inches to the right back and 3 inches to the left back. I also cut¬† a facing for the right back about 5 inches in width. I have to admit that this is my first experience in creating a slip covered chair but with a lot of trial and errors I think they turned out just fine.
¬† This photo shows my right back side with the facing attached. Then fold back the facing and press. Place both backs together by overlapping the right side about 2 to 3 inches¬† over the left side making sure to create a center back. Baste stitch these together. Next attach the front and back. Stitch the sides and top together to form a pillow case effect.
¬†¬† This demonstrates what it will look like once you have stitched it and turned back right side out. Next, cut out a five inch band. I added piping or welting (whichever name you are used to) to the band top and bottom.
