More progress

I wanted the jacket to challenge me, particularly because I am sewing on faux leather.  Believe me this has been a bear of a challenge.  The fabric is thick to begin with and when sewing through two thicknesses it is rather difficult and sewing very slowly is the best way to handle this.

I have switched back and forth between walking foot, zipper foot and Teflon foot. The walking foot has been a huge success in sewing layers together.

I just completed inserting the sleeves which was the most difficult sewing thus far.  Photos to follow.


  1. You are to be commended thus far. Is your leather black, does it have any stretch, and lastly where did you get it from???

  2. Glad to hear you are making progress. I am admiring all the faux leather projects I am seeing in the blogosphere lately. Hope your weekend is going great!
