      Thanks! This is the first garment I’ve made by taking apart something else. It’s definitely a different kind of sewing, but it’s very rewarding! Good luck on your project!

    Your new jacket looks really great! The worn look of the leather gives it a special touch.

      Thanks! I love how buttery and soft the leather is from being worn in.
