My mom used to work as a seamstress for upholstery and leather jackets. The only way I've ever seen her sew leather is with an inside seam, then a stitch on either side of the seam for extra strength (which also holds the folds of the inside seam flat). You would be better off to remove the seat cover and do it right. Just stitching it up from the top side would look horrible, and produce a very weak joint that would be prone to tearing the leather.
Do it right, and you won't be disappointed.
