Once pinned remove the slipcover and sew right along the pin line, removing the pins as you go. I do this in sections and keep adding on, usually taking the slipcover on and off several times as I sew. Since I was using curtains I tried to take advantage of the hemmed edges. I ran the finished edges of the curtains along the bottom of the sofa it saved me the step of hemming the slipcover at the end.
If you want to take an extra step towards an upholstered look, add a strip of Velcro along the bottom edge of you sofa and slipcover so you can tuck the edges under for a tight fit. This last tip is specifically for sewing velvet. Watch that you keep the direction of the velvet going in the same way whenever possible.
Velvet will look dark in one direction and lighter in another. If you are not careful you may have one cushion looking like it is a different color than the rest. But as a novice sewer I was too afraid. This post may have given me the confidence! Only way to know is to give it a try try. There are plenty of books and Youtube videos to help you through the hard parts.
I say go for it! If you are felling timid I might also recommend trying out your skills using inexpensive muslin. Then you can either live with your muslin slipcover a while or use it for a pattern. Here is one I made years ago. I have used some curtains for stretching over canvases and hung in a friends cafe.
They are great value and good quality. Good call, never a need to be a fabric snob. Sometimes I find buying a pair of curtains in a designer fabric can be cheaper than buying the fabric by the yard. Wow that is an amazing job well done. I love it when people think outside of the box with great results. Your sofa is just beautiful. The genius and skill of this is blowing my mind. The curtain fabric was an inspired choice, and you totally make the construction look easy.
I have to second what Britt said. The genius here is stunning. I actually used a choice expletive out loud when I saw the finished result. Haha, I love a choice expletive! Glad I could help with your slipcover inspiration. I am always hunting fabric and more particularly hunting a deal so any fabric is fare game, tablecloths, sheets, and yes Ikea curtains!
I just found your blog and this project…WTF!?! Genius idea and brilliant execution. Bed sheets and tablecloths and certain dresses have fallen victims to my decorating projects but this is truly brilliant because the color is so fab! I always check the drapery and shower curtain sections at Homegoods, Marshalls, Target, etc… the fabric is always heavier than a LOT of the home decor fabric at the only fabric store nearby, which is Joanns. Your sewing skills are awesome! I am also a blue velvet sofa stalker!
