This customer absolutely loved the fabric on her suite which also had 2 sets of matching curtains at each end of her through dining and living room. She was loathed to change the fabric and wondered if we could do anything. There was a tear in a side panel of a back cushion but a more visible problem was on the lugs of the seat cushion of one of the chairs. The fabric had begun to rip.
Our only option was to strip the back panel from the sofa which thankfully was always against a wall and we just had enough to make one seat cushion which had to have 2 seams as you can see above. Below shows a blue fabric from the Pimlico range which matched in with the blue in the pattern.
No one would know unless they looked for the back panel and the seams.
