hello all, i have a small lingerie shop that i have opened up, i do my leather work there as well...so far just things like dog collars, belts, key tags and a few adult items..nothing drastic...yet :whistle: i have been asked by a few people for leather bras.... i have no experience with sewing what so ever...well i can hand stitch my kids shirt or whatever..but that is it. i have an older sewing machine...waiting till i can afford a heavy duty one. i have no experience with patterns at all. i guess i should have taken home ec :unsure: can someone point me in the right direction for accomplishing this?
have a great day!

For that extra perfect fit I would wet mould veg tan leather to the customers breasts. But that's just me. I'd go that far to ensure the customers satisfaction. :rolleyes2:

I used the search function at the top right. I put "leather bra" in quotation marks so it looked for the phrase and the only two threads that came up were this one and the one I posted. I am no expert in searching for things on the net, but this search function works pretty well for me.
