Consider These Factors When Measuring


You may need to take an extra measurement or two, based on the type of slipcover you choose. If you want to buy dust ruffle slipcovers, for instance, you'll have to measure your sofa or chair from the top of the legs to the floor.

It's also important to consider the sort of material your new slipcover is made of. Knit fabrics (such as cotton and spandex) stretch to suit your furniture, making small measurement errors is possible. Since woven fabrics don't stretch like knit fabrics, you'll have to take precise measurements if you'd like a fabric like twill.
