I'm staring to finish up a project from 2010. I made my pattern from the original cover. I've had to disassemble the cover a couple if times and sew tighter in order to get a better fit. My question is this: since the original panels of the seat were probably stretched over time, should I make the next set slightly smaller so I can maintain a 1/2 seam ang not have to adjust it to make it fit better ?

It's a lot easier and cheaper to have it too big and make it smaller than it is to make it too small to begin with. The newer vinyl is more supple and stretches more than old vinyl.
