What you guys using to back up your french top stitching? Ive been using scrap vinyl but sometimes causes a pucker on sharp corners.
whats good to use marine or automotive use?


I've alway used a strip of matching. Vinyl  incase it is seen


I think you need to use a thinner, more flexible backing. I've used headliner listing before, it's a folded fabric, cut on the bias and that is a big help in allowing it to make curves.
Everything's getting so expensive these days, doesn't anything ever stay at the same price? Well the price for reupholstery hasn't changed much in years!
