I make all repairs and alterations myself and since that was fun i decided to try making clothes myself. Currently working on a cotton duck jacket that will be finished probably.... not soon. I have made a pattern and a prototype that i am working on trying to get the fit and style i want. If you have seen the post overalls el ranchero thats pretty close to what im working with. Ordered samples of fabrics and i will use a very heavy cotton duck. The heaviest sample i got was so stiff and thick that i doubt you could ever wear a garment constructed by it. It was sooooooooooo nice..... Ive worked with leather before so eventually i will start making a new wallet. As can be seen in the evolution of leather goods, i really need a new one. and a thousand repair projects... etc.. anyone else?
