Modified vogue pattern, deer hide leather jacket. Fully topstitched and lined, including sleeve zippers, front zipper and snaps. Underarm seams taped down, and edges of seams clipped on an angle to reduce bulk.
This was my first time working with leather and i was unaware that the leather i chose was thicker than most jackets would usualy be made with and would turn out more like a motorcycling jacket, which wasnt really the look i was going for, but i rather like the way it turned out anyways!
