How to order from my Bespoke Biker jacket service

So, you want to order a bespoke biker jacket but not sure what I offer, then fear no more this post is to tell you what entails when you order one of my badass jackets.

What makes my jackets different?

A lot of people are shocked when they find out that my jackets are made from scratch, yes that’s right people all of it from the design, pattern cutting, cutting out of the fabric to the sewing the god dam thing up, Pretty neat huh?

So, your basically buying a on off jacket that made entirely just for you!

When it comes to ordering a unique bespoke biker jacket all you have to do is go to my personalised your own service where you can check out the shapes and styles that I offer through this service.

This service is includes creating a jacket to your personal taste, so if you are looking for a particular design or even just to change some design details that works for me.

But here is a little bit more information on how the design part works.

I am open to creating any design for you and so if you have a particular theme to your wedding or colour pallet I am happy to work with that to create a special design.

My jackets aren’t just for weddings either they can be ordered just to wear every day, at events, for businesses or festivals so same goes as above looking for a particular design just drop me an email at hello@borntothrea.co.uk and we can discuss further

The fabrics

I wanted to offer something a little bit different when it comes to patches, so I work with a mixture of textures including glitter and faux leather fabrics to create these unique designs.

All fabrics are sourced from small business in the UK to create a hand appliquéd design, each design is drawn out first to make sure you are 100% happy.

I then transfer this design to a template to help me cut it out in the fabric. A lot of time and care goes in to the designs/ patches. They are glued and then stitched on in place to make sure they last and don’t budge!

The great thing about these designs is they don’t have to be on the back they can be anywhere on the jacket.

Just want a plain jacket? No problem I am more than happy to make one.

My jackets are made in standard UK sizes from size 8 to 18 online but I can go up to a size 26.

But wait… my bespoke biker jackets can be adapted if needed for example in length i can do shorter, longer, petite – this can all be accommodated all I ask for you to contact me via email for this as the price can vary and I need to price the fabric accordingly.

I use high quality real leather for all my jackets and I have spent a long-time fabric sourcing from ethical leather merchants to get the right fabric to work for my designs.

All my fabrics come from the UK and sourced sustainably.

Payments:

I have several options when it comes to payment:

Pay the full amount or if you would like to do a payment plan I usually ask for a 50% deposit from the full amount to cover costs of the fabrics, then you can either split the rest of the costs down in to one or two final payments, all I ask is for the payment to be completed before I post the jacket out.

I accept PayPal or Bank transfer via an invoice.

I pride myself on creating badass leather jackets to last a lifetime and bring out the rebellious babe in you.

When you wear a piece of Born to Thread I guarantee you will feel like an icon.

Handmade leather jackets – Kiss Leather Jacket – I was made for lovin’ you

Handmade leather jackets – Kiss Leather Jacket – I was made for lovin’ you

Recently I had the pleasure of making this fun Kiss leather jacket for Jess a mega fan wanting to wear it for her wedding — super cool.

All my leather jackets are made form real leather and you can read more about why I make real leather jackets by hand here 

I absolutely love the requests I get through for designs on the back but this one was a fun challenge to make, I’m not gonna lie when the bride contacted me it had me a bit nervous.

Just the font in itself was a bit tricky to get right but with perseverance I got there in the end.

With Jess being a huge Kiss fan and her first dance being to this song we decided to go for the lyrics I was made for lovin you on the back in the style of font they use.

I used a black glitter fabric for the lettering.

We also added a green mermaid glitter star behind it to compliment the glam side and the star face design one of the members has.

Here is the Kiss leather mid – design

For the leather jacket itself we uses a silver leather in a short waisted style so it sat perfectly with her dress and had an emerald green lining to match the star colours on the back.

I was a bit worried that the glitter would all merge together and you wouldn’t be able to read what it says but it worked out really well in the end.

The finished look of the Kiss leather jacket

Jess was so happy with the whole design of her jacket and was blown away with it being exactly how she wanted it to be. She even sent me a film of her opening her jacket when she received it through the post.

If you’re looking for that edgy style on your wedding day or even just for every day, then my handcrafted personalised leather jackets are just for you. Just like Jess and her Kiss leather jacket!

Services include:

Back patches: Have a certain theme, colour way — no idea to big or too small, I’m always up for a challenge.

Made to order jackets:  are available to buy from the born to shop page where you can invest in one of my hand drawn designs but if you have a specific design in mind please contact me as the price may differ,  I’m already excited to hear your ideas.

Is women’s bespoke clothing poor quality

Is women’s bespoke clothing poor quality

My answer to whether women’s bespoke clothing is poorly made is – not in the slightest at all! In fact it’s the complete opposite to what people think.

Did you know when clothing is made in mass produced factories its passed through several fast production lines which mean a certain amount of garments have to be made in a particular time.

Where is the love and care in that?

There will be a machinist for the body of the garment, a machinist for the zips, a machinist for the sleeves and so on and they don’t focus on the size its just how many they can get made in a day.

This is where believe the problem can occur because with them having to get so many number of items made in a day mistakes happen = garments not fitting properly.

Have you ever been to try something on and size doesn’t fit but them you try another size and it fits… well this is because its not made by the same person and care hasn’t gone into the making of the garment.

But it plays with your mindset doesn’t it,  I defiantly has for me I’ve gone to try things on and come away feeling not very confident and  bit disheartened about the whole shopping experience.

Why should I choose bespoke clothing then?

When you choose to go bespoke not only do you get care and attention going into the item but it is also made to you exact measurements. 

That means when trying something on you come away feeling incredible and a hell of a lot more confident, I can guarantee you on that one. 

When working with me 1:1 that is exactly what my main priority is : confidence.

It’s all in mindset when it comes to clothing and I believe confidence plays a big part. I love to tap into your personality and really get you to connect with who you are.

Confidence in clothing is everything — own that shit.

This is where I can eliminate the fear of clothing being made poorly as well because not only do you get to create a rocking leather jacket or piece of clothing you get to be apart of the journey too, you get to see how its made.
