Thanks for the speedy reply. You haven't confused me, and I appreciate the information.

We have a comfortable older couch that is starting to look worn and we want to spruce it up a bit. We don't like the loose-fit slipcovers on the market, so that's out. I'm a pretty handy seamstress but am intimidated by the thought of making my own fitted slipcover for it. (Actually, I go back and forth: I can do this! I'm sure I can do this! I'll just get some bargain cotton duck and make my own slipcover. What a handy skill this would be to have. And then I chicken out and do nothing.)

Another option would be to have it reupholstered. However, this sofa only cost us $800 new, so I'm not sure it would be worth spending that much to have it reupholstered. It's certainly something to look into, though, especially if I can find my own quality fabric at a bargain price. And perhaps the labor here in the Midwest would be a bit less than in the DC area.

Thanks again.
