Most of the details for this leather two-piece outfit were inspired by things I’ve been learning thus far from bag making. I included close up photos of the jacket’s details first because that was where the design actually started, from bag construction elements…Press stud snaps (a closure common for bags), suede bands and burnishing were used throughout, and these were all things I was using at the time whilst constructing bags-In fact I’ve learned a lot from making bags that I’m excited to apply the bag making process to clothes…. I didn’t turn many seams inside out for this jacket, especially around the edges- most of the suede edges and layers were cut and burnished with leather chemicals for that smooth and sealed look, then top stitched– a method which is used often for bag straps and handles. Also, there were a shortage of wearable leather jackets in my closet! Of course the inspiration wasn’t just about how to apply bag making tricks to garments, but the laser cut leather itself. I was immediately attracted to its holey texture, this made for a very lightweight two-piece. I like uniforms too which is why I decided to go ahead with a matching skirt, didn’t know what else to do with leftover leather.
