You can certainly do that. Just install JD Seattle and Make sure your module positions are the same in the same place. That should do all the heavy lifting and then you can change the design around to match the preview.
All of this can be done before you set Seattle as your default template and just by using the TemplateStyle preview feature from the Joomla backend template manager.
