DIY seats yardage
 
Anyone know how many yards of material are needed to cover RV-8 seats?

When I did my RV9A seats, I thought I bought enough, but ended up going back twice. The problem I ran into was the orientation of the fabric. To make the fabric run the same on all the sections, I had a lot of wasted material. So the amount depends if you have a fabric with a preferred orientation.

John

How many yards did you use to get the desired results?

I think.. therefore I know
 
I think it was 6 yards, but I redid the first seat back and seat bottom.
Also I had a really long piece that took a lot of fabric to get the orientation right.

I was thinking 4-5 yards. Orientation may not be an issue since my seats arenít side by side. Having a local shop do them. Better to have enough then come up short. Iíll order 6, should have plenty left over to make stick boots or other little pieces. Thanks for the advice
