This one presented me with a a challenge! My usual upholsterer has retired and therefore enticed me to try by myself. I usually only restore the wood...

Thew depth of the seat was not enough to use springs as in my first trial. The side of the seat's frame  has to remain visible, not covered by fabric, because of side appliqués.
The second trial used the flexible bands and straps. The frame had been worked with staples and black nails many times and could become brittle. I regret that there was no old piece of upholstery still attached on the frame when I received it.

So, I am open to any suggestions and critiques!
