A well-made, properly styled slip cover has a place in today's home decoration, for it can give a new and fresh appearance to a room. The slip cover described in this bulletin is made in several ·separate sections. With this method the number of sections will depend on the structure of the chair. Usually the back is one finished piece, each arm one piece, the seat-base and seat-front one piece, and the cushion one piece, totaling five separate sections. Because this slip cover has separate sections, it is easy to make and easy to fit smoothly to the chair. When all the sections are completed, they are put on the chair and held in place with thread tacking, wood dowel, or steel tacks.
