What a poorly made piece.
The first thing you learn when sewing patterns is to cut the pieces so as not to inturrupt the pattern.
The panel is cut perpendicular, the stirrup keeper is cut at an angle and the cover over the stirrup bar is at an angle.
Nothing screams class like fake snakeskin (not!)
Arguing with trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter how good I am at chess the pigeon is just going to knock over the pieces crap on the board and strut around like it is victorious.
