I’ve come into about 40 vintage leather coats, and about 20 of those are fur trimmed. They’re wrinkled and smell musty, and the conditions range from ripped to pretty good.
The fur trim on the coats includes mink, fox, and raccoon.
I’m thinking that I can make more money on them by repurposing them, and since I got them for practically free (work I did last year, finally collected on this trade)… I was thinking of making a fur trimmed leather bikini (using the Jessica #8038 A pattern which looks easy enough)…
I have the basic Singer 1507… can I sew suede leather with it? I’ve not sewn in about 10 years, though as a teenager I used to be pretty good.
Are there any basic fur and leather sewing tips, recommended patterns, projects, etc?
