  1. your sofa looks great, and will even more when you replace slipcovers of those cushions. i am afraid of such a big project.

  2. That looks great! I am a huge fan of white slipcovers. I haven't gone there yet, but I have thought about it many times. I'm currently waffling b/t white and a linen color.

  3. Thanks, Sana, Kat and Kim.Kim, I suggest to go with white. The advantage of white is that you can bleach it, a linen color will probably not withstand the treatment.Sana, the biggest difficulty is the size of the customer, not so much the complexity of the dress. 🙂

  4. Kim, don't be scared by it. Yes, it's a lot of work, but it's not really brain surgery-difficult. Try with an inexpensive fabric (dropcloth?) to start, in case you don't like the result.

  5. Hi Lana Mango!!! Looove that I came across your blog. I have been trying to find a tutorial for a slipcover for my sectional. I have the leather on the outside and have microfiber cushions that I HATE. 🙂 Your tutorial is awesome as I think that you just made me realize I can do that "fitted sheet type method" on my cushions. Could you give me details as to how you did the cushions though? How do they stay? Please, thank you!! 🙂

    Love what you did with the slip covers, wonderful idea when you cant take off the cushions with the fitted sheets. Now my question is about the back cushions,mine are attached to the furniture and I can’t get them off. How will I be able,to do this? If you have any idea, let me know. Thank you.

      I would be as stumped as you. Luckily mine have removable cushions.

    I love this page, how many hours, roughly, did it take you to do that? I am quoting someone, and they have a similar couch to cover, so I am going to go by an hourly price, but need to make sure it is worth it.

    1. I was so happy to see how you did the arm I tried 3x also happy to see you make mistakes and went forward I will try again in 2016. thank you

  9. We too, have a sectional – beige and brown; but I’m am a new freak about everything being white! (I can always add pops of color other ways, and I’m so tired of neutrals – yuck!

    Thing is, I don’t see, so I’m wondering if I found a seamstress to make slipcovers, would it end up costing us the same as buying a new (or good used) white sectional?

    I’m not afraid of white either – and there’s always Scotch Guard!

      We are still using the covers years after I made them. They are worn out in parts (we wash them often), but the fabric is so soft now, like old jeans. I have to make new ones. 🙂

  10. LOVE LOVE LOVE this!! I have the sofa(Friday Collection @ JCPenneys) like your sectional in off white. It too needs to be dry cleaned, however I took a chance and washed it in cold. It did come some what clean, but I was afraid to use and bleach. Considered on making a new cover, seeing that the slipcover for it is $300 (eeek). Thank you for making me think about making one again, you make it seems easy.

  11. I have a project just like that I think I will give it a try It came out great love the idea of the white denim THANK’S FOR THE IDEA
