Hee hee-great review! I also would like to work with leather someday and these are great tips. Love the tip on practicing on a used piece first- I have not thought of that.

I like it! Very, very sassy. Isn't re-styling such fun?

What a great idea! Your skirt is so cute! Thanks for all of the leather resources too. I have definitely been thinking about leather these days, especially after seeing Clio's jacket.

You are certainly getting the hang of sewing with leather. Great job!

Lovely skirt and this is a super reuse of the jacket!

Ooo, nice job! It's fun working with leather, eh? You have to get creative coming up with new methods for standard sewing techniques (i.e. pinning). I love how your skirt turned out, much nicer than the original garment!

Actually, I've now sprayed the skirt with Resolve and the wiffy-ness has disappeared. Thanks for asking Baja Susana. I thought the spray might affect the leather colour but it didn't. I didn't test it because I've used this spray on other upholstery and the finish wasn't affected. So I'm guessing this was actually a good piece of leather.

Nice work! I have to know, is the skirt whiffy?

Wonderful skirt and great combo with the jacket. You have made some lovely leather garments!

The skirt turned out really great but together with that jacket, one sensational outfit. You really know how to put pieces together. Super well done!!

Wow, what a fabulous job you did on this skirt! I'm dying to do something with leather and your tip to test with a used garment is very smart.
