Sorry I do not have a picture. It appears that the existing seam came apart due to weakening of thread. The thread is broken and the split is now about 8-10 inches in length along the seam. I have purchased upholstery thread and assume I can try to blind stitch this by hand; but will it hold?
The blind stitch is going to be iffy, especially if the area has to withstand being sat upon. I personally wouldn't risk it. It's not going to be quite as nice looking, but I'd go with a whip stitch and a curved upholstery needle if I were you.
