    Thank you Todd for the link again. I was looking for it last week and couldn't find it.
    Do you think it would be successful made in light garment weight leather?

    A friend wants a beret style cap in leather and your pattern came to mind due to the shaping in the pattern pieces.
    Leather, industrial sewing machine, thread and other bits & bobs are all in our combined stashes so no issue there.
    I'm just wary of cutting into the leather and can't think of a suitable fabric to use as a muslin.
    Thanks

    I think a light leather should be fine. I did this one out of a hunk of ultrasuede upholstery material which I found in the bargain bin at the fabric store. It's not real leather, but it's at least as heavy as a lot of garment leather. Real leather would also be somewhat mold-able as well for shaping purposes.



    Next for me will be a waxed cotton shell (like Barbour coats have) probably fleece or wool lined. I tried one but I was messing around with the pattern piece shapes and it didn't fit me once it was done. I have an Inverness cape started from the waxed cotton and a hunk of wool to line it with so I might as well make a matching tam.
