Rolls & pleats

Dan; I fit my paper patern to the other seat, & it checks OK, however, I'm thinking about shortening the width by maybe 1" (1/2" off each dide), & making a new bolster w/ the proper curve on top. I discovered when I took the dtitches out, there was a small area that was cut because of 2 thread passes over each other. I put 1/4" foam on the back of the seat. The front is 2" of foam w/ a 40 oz. jute cover, & cotton stuffed around the perimiter to fill out the edge. I also put a narrow strip of 40oz. jute under the bolster in hopes of filling it out better. I'm undecided whether to shorten it yet. I also have a choice of stiffer molded welt, or some softer I made. What think?
