It only took me a few months to reveal this project but I’m delighted with the result. I will be going over all the technical changes of the leather jacket, tips how to sew leather and how I created the faux embroidery on separate posts. Spoiler alert: It took a lot of painting leather research to get the best effect but all my leg work will guide you to make your own version if you feel inspired. Taking used clothes and re-making it is a really enjoyable process and best of all, environmentally friendly.
