My first leather jacket

Added Oct 3, 2008

Enschede, Nether...






I was very curious about making a leather jacket, then I found this imitation leather, reasonable price not too risky to waste. the pattern was from Knip Mode, Jan 2007, actually it was from a wol jacket but I found the pattern very interesting and very 70’s so I gave it a try. the material was great because it was easy to sew. I found those great imitation leather buttons the same color of the material. nice try, very good results. My husband is pushing me to make him one.

Material Notes

1 1/.4 leather imitation





Knip mode and actually I must say me because the pattern came on size 38 and was very difficult to adjust it to mine.

    Great jacket. It fits you perfect. I think it must be difficult to make a stitches on leather fabrics. I tried it ones, but my sewing machine did not want to move the fabric forward. Did you use a special fit for sewing this fabric?

    Terrific jacket! Any tip on sewing the sleeves? I never tried sewing (fake) leather jacket, I was intimidated with sleeves insertion. I normally pin them to the sloper before stitching, but pinning the leather would leave the pin marks… So, how did you sew them?
