Putting a slip cover on a wingback recliner may seem like an insurmountable task. The shape of a wingback recliner makes it impossible to follow the same instructions to cover a more simple form of chair. Fortunately, you can learn a lot of tricks from those who have covered many back chairs. If the chair’s original fabric is not removable and you cannot make a pattern from it, do not worry. Use the chair yourself to make a pattern and work on one piece at a time. Take generous measurements of the different parts of the chair and then cut into the fabric in a square or rectangle. Make sure to cut extra fabric in length so that the slipcover can be stored in the chair.

Put the chalk to use while you make the slipcover for your wingback recliner. Use chalk to draw a line for sewing, according to the shape of the chair. This method works particularly well along the odd-shaped wings. Pin two pieces of fabric together over the top of the chair sections, use the chalk to mark, remove the fabric and sew after chalk stroke.

The back of the chair must be turned on at the end. Many times the slipcover can fit just over the top of the chair; however, with wings that are larger at the top than at the bottom, this is not possible with back chairs. Release the front of the cover on the chair working from front to back. Sew the top of the back to the top of the front help of a sewing machine. Hand sew using a curved padding needle to close the sides.
