    Leather Waistcoat

    I have a ton of leather and was wondering what I can make next with it. I have decided on a leather waistcoat. Has anyone made a leather waistcoat or know of a pattern for one. I would be interested in any advice or pointers
    Thanks
    Ian

    I don't know of a pattern for a leather waistcoat but why not pop into a charity shop, find a fabric one that fits you then take it home and cut into its constituent parts. Then you could use those as a pattern. I would guess you could pick one up for a couple of quid.

    Don't do the leather waistcoat - it's just a bit TOO Status Quo.
    Step away from the leather...

    They just seem like normal people you'd see wandering around the village?
    Do you want to be happy or do you want to be normal?
