How do I reupholster this curved chair?
How to make cover like old one but prevent wrinkles and bubbles. When I removed old cover it was glued partially to foam under it and it just ripped pieces of foam.

What a mess. You have to replace the foam. Cover the foam then reattach it to the chair
mold pieces of foil taped together then lay out flat to make your pattern
Can you remove the top from the base? If you can remove the top cover then do so.
If you can, then lay the fabric over the chair top, making sure that it is equal all around, allowing the fabric to go underneath to were the other fabric finished.
Start in the middle where the chair curves. Stretch it across and staple to the back. Then repeat on the other side. Then do the middle of the top and the bottom stretching it straight. Then you fill in with the staples, finishing with the corners. Then add any backing fabric to cover the staples. You can cover any additional staples with braid. Stick it on using hot glue.
Need a knitted type material. Which will form to the shape of the chair. Make it like a large pillow case . Sewn on top and tuck under in front. Make adjustments to the side underneath. Cotton will be difficult to follow the form. But a knitt combination will work better. Good Luck it can be done.
I think that your idea sounds the best. The fabric was glued for a reason -- probably to hold that curve in place. All of these ladies know what they are doing, but that center curve is what needs anchored.
Remove old foam & scrap any remaining glue off, cover the chair with bedsheet fabric, then a final fabric choice, then attach the chair. If it's an outdoor chair, place a lining of plastic between the 2 layers of fabric so you could remove the outer fabric & wash & replace when needed.
