Dear Burda Family
A few days ago I posted seeking some help in resizing a leather coat I found at a thrift store. Here is a pic of the coat. My plan is to just reduce the size of the coat. I will be using the original button holes, button and if possible the pockets. My concern really is getting a really good fit and the lapel.
I am a really adventurous sewer. I will try anything! I have never worked with leather before, but patience, the internet and a few books lend for some really good sewing.
What I am looking for is some advice, tips or what would you do
This is a leather coat, fully lined and never used. I got it from Good Will (thrift store), tag included. The coat is really big 2XL compared to my size 12.
