VICTORIA 30 UPHOLSTERY

One of our members wishes to re-upholster her Victoria 30 and wonders if anyone has a set of patterns that she could work to?  If you can help please let me know.

Re: VICTORIA 30 UPHOLSTERY

Thanks Jon. I ended up carefully unpicking the old covers and using them to make paper patterns. They were a bit stretched and out of shape but the patterns turned out pretty good. In one or two places, on making up the new covers I decided a note for improvement could be made on a couple of the pattern parts, mostly to make for easier construction.
I have patterns for the port and starboard sofas, a square sofa back panel with which you make the six, the quarter berth mattress and the nav table seat. They are scribbled with fore/aft, top bottom etc and I managed to squeeze the lot out of 8 meters of 137cm width plain(ish) fabric with no pattern repeat wastage.

If anyone can make further use of the paper patterns then get in touch and I'll dig them out for you.
