How To Upholster A Wingback Chair. 500 to 700 depending on the quality and price per yard. Cut your pieces to size and then pin right side directly onto the chair temporarily.
Trim the seam allowance to 12 to remove any excess bulk. Run a line of pins down the corner where the seam will go then remove the pins that are holding the fabric to the chair and sew the two side seams. Youll just lay the new cover on the old one.
However you have to remove the staples that hold the old cover.
I always reuse the old fabric as a pattern for my new fabric but I like to add at least 2 extra inches on most sides just to make sure I have enough fabric. Also noted if you have a small upholstery hammer you should run it back and forth on the webbing to release the slack from the tension giving you more tension to pull down on. Make sure the springs are aligned but you can fine tune it once one webbing is in place and after that for every other webbing done. Lay down the sheet and turn the chair so the legs are in the air.
