66. RECARO seat custom

Entry:2021.12.04 / Work:2021.11.28

I got an old Recaro seat which was replaced with fake leather. I had kept the original fabric of the CITY, so I used it to cover the seat and back. I searched the internet for a way to disassemble the sheet and done it. I used an industrial sewing machine to fix the fabric and sewed it by hand too. It looks classical and cool!

Sew around the edges of the upper back to prevent shifting. This is a shape that cannot be sewn by a sewing machine, so it sew by hand.

The corners are stitched three-dimensionally so that they cover the pad.

Since the length of the fabric is not enough, I added the fake leather in the hidden position.

Since the fabric was removed from the back seat of the dismantled car, there is no room in the size, so I will consider the cutting method.
