Handmade Leather Jackets

My idea for making leather jackets came to me in 2016 where I discovered samples of leather that looked amazing and though it would be a really fun to have a go at making one so I did and this really ignited a passion in me for leather craft.

In the summer of 2016 I taught myself how to make a jacket from an existing one I had so then developed the patterns to change the style to create the perfect fit.

Each one of my leather jackets are made from high quality leather sourced from an ethical leather merchant in Northampton UK and hand crafted by my fair hands from my small studio in North Yorkshire UK.

Bespoke Clothing

Have you always dreamed of that one dress that makes you feel a million dollars, those palazzo pants that make you feel like your strutting your stuff in Italy or even a tailored suit to show people who’s boss – then a bespoke service experience by might just be for you.

Born to Thread itself is made in house by myself from my small studio in Yorkshire with a mixture of bespoke and couture. 

What does this mean? Well, the main body of my garments are made by me using a sewing machine and then the finishing off of the garment is always done by hand. 

If I was to be embellishing anything then that would be done by hand also.



“I commissioned Bridie to make me a custom leather jacket based on a beloved jacket I had bought from a high street shop, which as always didn’t stand the test of time. 

 I am overwhelmed with how perfect it has turned out! Bridie had a consultation with me and spent the time to find out exactly what I wanted, my likes and dislikes to make sure she got it just right. She kept in touch with me updating me on the progress and provided me with fittings along the way. Her attention to detail is phenomenal and she was keen to get my input and opinions on the finer details, which are really important to me. She made me feel like I had her undivided attention and she really cared about creating me a perfect jacket. I can highly recommend Bridie to anyone looking for that personal bespoke garment. This will be treasured in my wardrobe forever and I’m so pleased I put my trust in Bridie – Born to Thread.

 Thank you Bridie, for everything you’ve done”

About Bridie

Hey Rocking Babe – I’m Bridie A.K.A Born to Thread.

My mission is to bring out your rebellious confident side through high quality handmade clothing with a feminine edge.

A true investment piece of clothing that will last a lifetime.

Born to Thread started as an idea in 2014 where I started at selling at handmade markets and feeling my way through the self employed lifestyle so after making several bespoke outfits for friends I decided in 2016 that I wanted to push my skills and specialise in bespoke womenswear and made to order products.

In this time I also taught my self how to make leather jackets which really ignited a passion for leather craft so alongside my bespoke wear I also offer plain and personalised jackets which are all handmade form scratch from my small studio in Yorkshire.
