Custom Slipcovers

Classic Ticking Custom Slipcover

My custom slipcover service has be discontinued. I no longer pin fit at my local customers’ homes or at my workroom.

I make custom slipcovers for clients in Kalamazoo, Michigan and nearby areas. 

 I need your furniture to do the pin fitting (pattern work). I drape, pin and cut the fabric directly on your chair or sofa to create a custom fit.

Here’s how it works:

1. Tell me about your project. Email me a description of your furniture and the type of fabric you’d like to use for your slipcover.  If I’m able to consider your project, I will ask you to send photos of your furniture.

2. Get a price quote and yardage estimate. Once I understand the details of your project, I will cost out your slipcover and advise how much fabric to buy.

3. Choose your fabric. I only work with a select group of washable, natural fiber fabrics:

4. I pin fit and sew your slipcover. Upon receipt of your fabric, I schedule a pin-fitting to take place at your home. I drape, pin and cut the fabric directly to your furniture. Then, I remove it and take it back to my workroom where I sew it.  When completed, I install your new slipcover.
