HOODS AND APRONS RECOVERY SERVICE
Are you looking for someone to recover your hood and make a new apron? Well you've come to the right place!! Please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Along with my full coachbuilt pram restoration service I am providing a recovering service for old coachbuilt pram hoods and aprons, using the traditional methods of covering by hand and handstitching the fabric to the frame. These days, SilverCross use another method whereby they stitch the cover to the lining and pull the whole lot over the frame but, unfortunately, this method can only be used if your hood fits the dimensions of their pattern. I cut each pattern to fit the shape of the frame and the cover is stretched and sewn into place which is the traditional way of covering the frame, whichever model of pram. I also use the traditional hoodlace to compliment the colour of hooding you have chosen.
I use waterproof hopsack fabric which is pretty strong and is available in most colours to suit your pram livery. You will find the colours for the hopsack and vinyl fabrics below, more often than not I can get other colours too, just ask if you need other colours and I'll see what I can do for you.
