Thank you for looking into this project. I am a hobbyist mechanic working on a project car that is not very common at all, many of the non-engine work needs to be custom made. There are no after-market seat covers for this vehicle. It is so old that the manufacturer no longer makes or sells them. Normally I would take this job to the upholstery shop in town - I went there to ask about my project and they wanted $1300 to simply provide a seat cover, I was told this was because there are no patterns available and they would need to create a pattern. I have the original upholstery that slips over the seat-form and it is in good, functional shape (no major rips or tears, just worn out and a bit funky).
I am looking for a person with sewing and upholstery experience to create a pattern for me based on the original seat cover.
This task will be for a single seat, the driver's-side seat, the passenger side is a mirror-image (opposite) of the driver's side. There are two main pieces, the seat-back and the seat itself. Each piece has 15 or 16 individual panels.
1) Thread-rip the driver's side seat upholstery into it's individual pieces.
2) Use the individual pieces to create a pattern for each of the pieces with accuracy and great attention to detail.
3) Provide me the pattern pieces so I can re-create the seat in the future if I choose to.
4) Ensure the pattern you create uses 'standard' formatting/markings/etc so another seamstress or upholsterer can follow it in the future if needed.
Please provide me with examples of your work. Thank you for taking a look at my project, it is very appreciated.
