How NOT to make a slipcover
Using laborious pin to fit methods to create a slipcover, as shown in many DIY videos, is time consuming and wastes yards of fabric as you painstakingly chop away at the fabric trying to shape out the sections. And, at the end, all of that pulling and pinning will result in a slipcover that is not symmetrical - the right side does not match the left, and the fabric is pulled out of shape.
The EASY way to make a slipcover
Save ttime and money when you use a pattern to make your slipcover. When you use a pattern you strategically place and align the pattern pieces on the fabric which reduces the amount of fabric you need. Also, by using a pattern, the left side of your slipcover will be just like your right and there the fabric is correctly aligned and squared - no twists, no pulls.
