Sewing a leather garment does take some sewing techniques different from sewing with fabric.

If you would like to learn more about leather made garments this book  “Leather Fashion Design” by  Francesca Sterlaccican help you gain a lot of knowledge.

I ordered this book last year from and I am very pleased with this book.

This book was  published September 2010,

isbn 9781856696715

You can see lots of sample pages and the content from the publisher see for examples

I took some pics from my book :

I have some other books about  leather sewing in my library but

this one stands out because it is a modern book and shows several ways step by step to make a shirt, pair of trousers and a jacket.

And shows beautiful made Designer garments plus a lot of information which could benefit a professional designer , it shows creating a design tech spec sheet too.

For anyone who is interested to sew a leather garment and needs to know how to make a shirt, jacket or pants this is a book you should consider buying.

Of course there are different ways to sew a leather garment but to get you started this book is useful because it shows  you to learn sewing different techniques.

  2. Great find! Unlike a lot of fashion textbooks, this one’s quite reasonably priced, at £25 RRP… I’m about to start on my first real leather garment (though I’ve made plenty of bags and belts myself) this weekend, but I can’t hold off any longer to wait for a book to ship. It’s times like this that I wish more publishers did e-books…
