Slipcover with Dressmaker Skirt
I make the entire cover with extra length on the skirt (including pleat inserts) and then with the cover on the chair I mark and pin the hemline. This is why I call this style "dressmaker skirt"
The flat welt in the seams is another way to personalize the cover. Corners of the cushion have little pleats to make the flat welt go around corners well. This style is the only time I cut strips on the straight grain of the fabric. Any other time I use bias-covered welt.
