Hi, this is Linc Thelen with Linc Thelen Design and this is how you measure a sofa for a slip cover. When ready to purchase a slip cover for your sofa, be sure to measure everything first. The first measurement I take is from the left arm to the right arm. If you can find help, it might be a little easier to do with two people. For this case I have a very large sofa and it's 118 inches. The next thing we want to measure is the height of the arm. Start by measuring the front first, lying the tape measurer down and measuring up. The next measurement you want to take is the width of the sofa, starting from the front to the back. The last measurement you want to take of your sofa would be the height of the cushion, applying the tape measurer down to the floor and to the top of the cushion. Having all your measurements first will help you save time when shopping for your next slip cover.
