Slipcovers

Below you will find information on required yardage and pricing for custom fitted, and casual fitted slipcovers.  NS stands for No Skirt, TS for Tailored Skirt, GS for Gathered Skirt.  Solid fabrics can be railroaded.  If you're not familiar with the term it means the lengthwise grain is running horizontally across the cover.  Some prints can be railroaded, depending on the design, most all prints should be used vertically though.  These are estimates.  Yardage includes fabric for making welting.
