Your slipcover is on, but there seems to be enough excess fabric to cover three sofas. Don't have a fit! Regardless of your seating situation, these hints* can help you get great slipcover results.
No Tucking Area
If your sofa doesn't have creases in between the sofa arm and the back cushions, simply make neat pleats, and tuck all the excess fabric under the seat cushions.
If your sofa's arms are very thin, try wrapping them in batting first. Then just put on the slipcover normally.
Try laying down nonskid strips that are normally used beneath carpeting to reduce slipping and sliding.
Tucking excess fabric into the crevices is the key to a pretty slipcover! Use a wooden spoon or spatula to help tuck in excess fabric. To keep it tucked in, roll up some old magazines with a rubber band and push them into the crevices.
And to handle any wrinkles, try throwing the slipcover in your dryer on a low setting with a damp towel for a few minutes. Tuck, tuck, tuck!
You love loose-back pillows ... but you get tired of straightening them day after day. Then try the nice-and-neat look described below.
Simply lay the pillows flat across the back of your furniture. Don't be afraid to remove one of your back cushions if it helps them lay flat!
