DIY Leather Jogging Pants pt2
It’s not a secret I love leather and loose fitting pants so when going on my weekly leather shopping trip I wanted to try a new lambskin leather from Tandy which is a very soft mirabella lambskin leather that I completely fell in love with.  I made my second pair of leather jogging pants with Vogue V8909 and the following alterations:

Cut the pattern at the knee in the front and back which created 4 pattern pieces
Added top stitching on all but side seams
Added 1 row of elastic to the waist along with a drawstring

Fyi- 3 hides were used for these pants.

    Hi Nicki!!

    Been wanting to try making the leather joggers for a while. I was wondering are you lining the leather pants with anything?

      Hi Britt

      I partially lined them with satin

    They are divine! I have already gone straight to the leather site to investigate and am now off to find that pattern you used. I find myself wishing for winter again…even though we have at least six months yet until the weather will even begin to turn here. I have never sewn with leather before but these look like a fabulous project to get started on…well after the leather armbands of course!

      Thank you Debbie 🙂 this leather is insanely easy to sew. Just be careful under the needle, it tends to tear a bit easy.

    I've recently discovered your blog, and I have to say since I've discovered it I look forward to seeing what is next… You do FABULOUS work I love all your DIY… I've since then gotten very motivated to start sewing again…. It's funny just this past week-end I started making a jumpsuit out of my stash of mensware fabric I have but I ran short on fabric.. So, I deceided I would buy some leather to make the sleeves…

      Thank you Roni

      I think leather adds something really unique and special to clothes.

    Just wondering how you did the bottom cuffs with the leather? Did you just use elastic, or another fabric? Thanks!
