Please describe the project specifications

The customer was restoring a custom built Defever 40 and wanted a two-tone racing stripe design throughout all of the exterior canvas.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

The customer selected Pacific Blue Sunbrella fabric with Navy Sunbrella accent striping, which was to flow from the bimini and all of the exterior covers.

What is unique or complex about the project?

All of the stripes were created using French seams to ensure that there would be no unfinished edges. The striping had to be designed to flow perfectly from the top to the console cover and the spacing of the stripes also had to be carried through to the corresponding seat covers. Despite our efforts to dissuade the customer, they were adamant that the finished bimini was to have a flat appearance, so the frame was designed with minimal crown and the bimini extends minimally around the frame shoulders.

What were the results of the project?

Though it was a challenging project, the result was excellent and customer was extremely happy with the work.
