Pattern(s)

I used a red corset I owned to pattern the vest

First time

I haven’t worked with leather or buckskin in a long time, and with leather you only get one try. As well I decided after I wore it a couple times that I was going to dye the skin to bring it to a deeper brown. The lovely people at the leather store had never heard of dyeing buckskin, but it worked. The dye job is patchy, but it matches what I wanted, a rougher, worn look.

Issues

The original sheepskin was SUPER yellow, and the colouring, both from the original and the dyed versions, rub off on anything I’m wearing overtop.
