Slipcover is a good protection for any chairs including the dining room chairs. Adding slipcovers for dining room chairs will enhance the decoration of your dining room while providing a comfortable seating place in soft and smooth surface.

How to make slipcovers for dining chairs are easy. Firstly, you can measure the chair. Measuring the chair can be started from the length and width of the backrest, then move to the depth of the seat. However, you can make it simpler by draping a sheet over the chair. Pin the fabric to fit with the size of the chair and measure the length and width based on the pinned area. You will need extra ½ inch sizes for your measurement. After that, you can drape your upholstery fabric over your dining chair and pin the back edges of the fabric. In this step, make sure that the pattern of the upholstery fabric is arranged in a pleasing way on the chair and sew the back edges together with a narrow seam. Check whether the slipcovers fit to your chair and add a fabric tie to secure the slipcover. To create the ties, you can simply cut 2 pieces of long material and place them to the slipcover. Next, you can simply sew a tight skirt to the bottom of your slipcover. And as the finish you can add the skirt to the slipcover after it has been sewed properly. The measurement of the skirt is up to you as long as it can be great for your slipcover.
