Knit Surface Edge

I'm not new to Solidworks, but I've only recently started modelling with surfaces to get something more free flowing.


I'm trying to model up a chair seat using surfaces for each of the panels. What I want to do then is offset the surface to create a thickened geometry which would be the upholstery foam. However each time I offset, there are gaps in the offset surface and I have been filleting them to try and gain the smoothed surface between all edges. What I'd rather do is have the edges join when offsetting then fillet the edges afterwards.


Basically I don't know how to do this and can't make head nor tail of some of the other posts. I think I need an idiots guide.


I've attached what I've done so far. You can see my edges are starting to get really messy. There's probably an easy way of doing this.. I just need help!
