This little leather waistcoat is a fun garment to add to any outfit. It is easy to wear, and the long fringe adds movement. For a classic western look make in brown or black leather, but you could make in a fun colored leather like red for a different vibe. Try binding the edges instead of the hole punch detail for an alternative look.
This pattern is from the South Western Summer collection
Soft leather or imitation leather.
To make this style in size 36, you will need 1 leather skin of approx. 8 sq. ft. (1 sq. ft. = 30 × 30 cm). Ask your leather dealer about requirements for larger sizes since leather skins can vary greatly. We recommend taking the entire paper pattern piece with you when buying the leather. You will need a scrap, approx. 50 × 60 cm (20 × 24 ins), for the fringe.
