recycled leather nr. 2

Den Haag, Nether...






When I made my first jacket from recycled leather, I drafted three patterns. For this one, I decided to use black wool, along with the leather from the old coat. I have to say, however, that it’s a difficult combination if you want your seams to behave and be flat… Jacket is fully lined.

Material Notes

leather from an old coat, wool crepe, lining

    I really love this with the corporate skirt, its so edgy. And the contrasting fabrics work a treat – a lot of contrasts with leather end up looking a little tacky but this garment definitely doesnt have that problem :) good job! what was the thickness of the leather you used?

    You really deserve to be out there with these designs! You have such talent. I’d love to see your work on a run-way some day. That is, if you want it there ;).
