  1. Do you mind sharing where you purchased the slip covers? They are by far the best fitting ones I have seen on the web.

    Thanks,

  2. Teresa, these are custom made by my friend Lisa at Zip A Stich in Victoria. I took my couches to her and she made them to fit. I ordered the pre shrunk canvas fabric from a place in Houston. I can give you the source if you need it.
