Hello,
I was wondering if any of you all knew of any patterns for a slipcover for a chaise lounge? I always see patterns for couch slip covers or chairs but nothing for a chaise lounge. Thank you

Tiffy.. if you ever opened one of those patterns.. you might see that they aren't much help really.. Simply put.. there are too many variations on the measurements of chairs and such to get a good fit using those.
However. .you can pull off a slipcover without any pattern at all. or if you wish.. choose a pattern closest to the look of your chaise and use it as a starter.. adjusting the pattern for fit.. You only have to add an ottoman pattern to the chaise pattern.. Using patterns isn't my preferred way of doing a slipcover though..
So try this instead.. use a block method.. that is to measure each piece of fabric you will need.. such as the back .. add a few inches to it.. pin it to the chaise inside out.. continue measuring and cutting each additional piece. When you have covered the entire chaise with the new pieces.. pin them at the seams.. and sew. You might want to stop along the way and sew the pieces after you have cut a few to check on your ability to do this. I am not telling you about a seam here.. as you should just be able to slip the cover over the chaise when done.. if not.. then you will need to leave an appropriate seam open to allow you to place it on easily. Your cushion if you are covering it separately. is nothing more than a very large pillow.. if you think of it like that. its less daunting.
BE SURE and prewash that fabric.. maybe even twice.. so you can wash it as needed without it shrinking.

Now my directions are probably clear as mud if you have never done a slipcover.. So. treat yourself to a few minutes on line.. and do a search for slipcovers. You will find lots of instructions and videos. Watching a few of those will give you a good idea on how to sew one up. whether it be a couch, chair, or chaise.

If you can post a pic.. I might be able to help a bit more.

I forgot to tell you we do have a thread on slipcovers and upholstery here.. in the archives.. I think its called ''Can I recover these Chairs.. '' by Maripat.. LOTS of info on how to do this if you can search out that thread.

One more thing . if you do plan on washing it.. I really recommend you serge or use a zig zag stitch at least on the seams so they don't ravel too much.

And I would also like to know what kind of fabric you intend on using.

I do the same thing that Poorpigling does, drape the fabric inside out and fit it right on the piece of furniture. Take full advantage of gathers, tucks and darts. My philosophy is that if you can fit a women's fluid body, you can fit a stationary and stagnant piece of furniture.

I like a really snug fit so I start with two deeply lapped zippers running vertically on the back of the slipcover. I space these out uniformly so if the back of the piece is visible they will look like a design element, somewhat like princess seams. Preparing the back piece of fabric with the zippers is my first step. It is very handy to be able to zip and undress the dress/slipcover as the fitting process continues.
