    Make a pattern out of lining or some cheap fabric with pins until you get your desired look. Then trace outline to make your pattern. Then you can.make it.

    I made covers by turning the fabric inside out and pinning and pinning until the fit was right. Then I stitched it with a basting stitch and turned it right side out and placed it over the chair. I did the back first and when I had that basted, I followed the same process for the seat and then attached the two pieces. Using a basting stitch makes it easy to remove stitching to make adjustments if necessary. I made a set of these for my daughter-in-law 15 years ago and she still has them on the chairs.
