Welcome here.

The lowest cost option is taking the seat off, cutting it down to make it narrower, and maybe removing the stock padding and adding thinner gel padding. There is also a Butt Buffer brand seat pad that is very thin and uses hospital bed cover material that prevents bedsores.

To recover the seat, the lowest cost option is to buy a new large T-shirt, preferably one of the dry weaves that handles rain and sweat better, and cutting it to fit then sewing it together under the seat.

I did this type of seat cover a few years ago and it works well, especially since I rarely ride in the rain. You could hire someone to stitch up some vinyl or leather for a better looking and longer lasting cover.
