DIY Leather Patchwork

blue1.5
 I’m making an attempt to challenge myself with sketching designs as opposed to going off the top of my head.  This was a great learning experience that was quite challenging considering I don’t sketch. 🙂  While making the pants, I had to start over several times which made me want to throw my sewing machine out the window.   After several fit issues with the pants, I finally ended with a product I’m proud of.  The top was made with my favorite pattern of all times, I added leather to the sleeves, elastic to the waist, exposed zipper down the back and a high neck.
