1. It’s always best to measure covers with the existing filling still inside, it is a lot harder to get accurate measurements from an empty case.

2. Pull the case taught, making sure you measure edge to edge, with no creases left in the cover.

3. If the cover has piping cord around the edge, measure between the piping, this will ensure the most accurate measurements.

5. Don’t worry if your case looks like it domes at the top. Simply select the Polyester and Stockinette option for your cushions, for extra comfort and overall look of the cushions.
