I want to sew a leather jacket. is the cutting of the leather same as cutting out a regular jacket?
If not, can you please tell me how to do that?
Please mail me to my id
Cutting and sewing leather is a whole different thing than cutting and sewing fabric. I strongly recommend you to try pattern in fabric first as well as trying to sew other/smaller samples in leather before even starting to think about a jacket.
