I have just recently bought this Kwick Sew 3764 pattern to see if I
can make something similar to the jacket above. I have found some beautiful super soft pigskin suede in the taupe colour below from Tandy leather factory. This will work out about half the price of the jacket from the catalogue, and that includes some special shears to cut the leather, and I also bought a belt buckles and end tab. I hope to have enough suede to make the jacket and and belt and perhaps even a bag - any left-over pieces of fabric will be used to trimming pockets, collars etc. Hopefully the suede should arrive next week.
