Slipcovers

Does anyone know of an easy pattern to create slipcovers for couches? I"ve been searching, but can't find anything!

Most good slipcovers are fitted;section by section. This makes it difficult to find a one-size-fits-all pattern because of the many different styles and sizes of sofas.
One company that sells slipcovers over the internet at reasonable prices is
slipcovers.com
Check it out. It may give you an idea or two.

Vogue makes a pattern for slipcovers. Its number 1388 and has a good chart for calculating yardage. It's a bit thin on the fine details of the steps but I've found it better than the four books I checked out on making slip covers. - Sharon iin Waterloo, Ontario

slipcovers

i searched internet a long time before i found web site sew slipcovers. com, there is also a no sew slipcovers.com, i found good info, i am in the process of trying to slipcover my sofa, i bought some pretty material for $l.00 yd@wally world, 15yds was all they had of this print and color, i am not sure that is enough material to cover it entirely but enough to look good, slipcovers when you buy are very expensive. martha stewart suggested using a sheet and fit it to sofa, i have used sheets for a long time, i think slipcover looks better. some of you have e-mailed me but i cannot retrive. sorry..........
