Sewing with leather (real or faux) isn't as daunting as some people would believe. With basic knowledge and a few extra tools, you can sew leather garments or accessories easily. In this class I am going to show you how to sew different types of darts, seams and flaps. And to help you put these to use, we will create a stunning peplum top in buttery suede from start to finish.

This is a video class with 3 hours of high-definition video which you can watch whenever you want.
