Need repair ideas

I have a 67 fairlane. Standard vinyl interior. The side of the bottom of the front seat has a tear in it. The tear is on the side where the material stretches. Right now the tear is about an inch long. I would like to find a materail that I could attache underneath that will give the torn area some support to keep it from tearing more. Figure then I could use a vinyl repair kit to make it look presentable. Am I on the right track? If not looking fr a better idea. What can I use on the backside?

If you're just wanting to keep a tear from advancing, use some contact adhesive on the seat and the patch and glue just about anything on the back side. That will hold it until you decide what you want to do with it.
