The simple look, looks good.
Lines straight as are the sewed seams.
Less seams begets less water intrusion.
In MY BOOK, $250 is a bit high. If you're happy that all that matters.

On my Honda 500-4 I sewn up a Diamond fold cover. I searched for something special for buttons and found life sized buffalo head Nickel ($0.05) buttons. Each fold held water for a while so I had to carry a towel and plastic until dry.
Always give/takes on things.

I was all prepared to have it done as it came but the folks where I had it recovered were of the opinion that less seams was the way to go,$250.00 is pretty good in my area,everywhere else wanted close to $400.00,like you said as long as I'm happy that's all that matters. :lol:

Yaaaa, after posting I realized I didn't take into account we're in 2017 not 1980's. Just call me Mr. Rip.
