How to order from my custom leather jacket service

Wanna go custom? but not sure how or what I offer, then fear not, this post is to help and how the journey works 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 all of it, from the design to pattern cutting working with your measurements, cutting out of the fabric to sewing the design and jacket Pretty cool huh?

It definitely makes it like no other you’ve seen before.

I taught myself how to make a jacket from an existing one I had, then developed the patterns to change the style and create the perfect fit.

It also happens to be a personal favourite item of mine which is why I absolutely love making them.

Each one of my custom leather jackets is made from high-quality leather sourced from an ethical leather merchant in Northampton UK and you can read more about why I use real leather here 

All handcrafted by my fair hands from my home studio in North Yorkshire UK.

I have options for plain jackets or designs with a personalised design to your requirements, where each design is hand-drawn and cut out in leather to create a truly unique investment piece just for you.

I’m here to create magic for you and make you feel like the luxe rebel you deserve to be. 

My custom leathers will help you go from feeling lost and frustrated with your wardrobe to being able to put together badass outfits confidently and effortlessly every day. 

HOW IT WORKS 

 

  • Jackets will be made from my blocks to your measurements and can be personalised to suit whatever design you have in mind. 
  • I start by discussing via email or zoom about your designs ideas, fabric colours, sizing, FAQs, and for me to get a feel on how to bring your personality into the jacket with my design knowledge. 
  • Follow up of all info discussed through a confirmed email 
  • I then take your design idea and draw it up in digital form so you get an idea of what it will look like
  • I can send any fabric samples to you in person before the making of the jacket to make sure you’re 100% happy with the colours and fabrics 
  • A sample of the jacket will be sent with a zoom call for me to check the fit before making in leather   
  • Email updates on the process of your jacket to make sure you are 100% happy with how it’s looking.
  • PDF printout on how to care for your jacket 
  • Lifetime guarantee  
  • All jackets will be posted in a luxe bespoke Born to Thread reusable box.

Whats been happening

Whats been happening

Whats been happening? Well I’ll tell you its been a busy few months over here in BTT HQ! I’ve had sparkly sequin bridesmaid outfits on the go which are all ready to be posted out for a December wedding.

I also had a custom jacket for a Beetlejuice themed wedding which I made back in September… I mean how cool is that.

The bride made a definite decision that she want red and a black and white striped lining to be involved, so for the back patch we went for a red glitter heart and a pearlised white leatherette for the ‘wifey’ writing, both elements are all cut out and handmade specially to use on one of my jacket which are also handmade from scratch. 

I found this awesome black and white striped fabric online and knew it was a must to use for the lining, everything was starting to team up really well and went with the theme of the wedding deliciously. 

The shape and style of the jacket was cropped which meant the length was cut shorter, with this style sits nice and fitted into the waist. This is also a perfect choice if you didn’t want to hide any detailing you had on the back of the dress. 

Last week I received this awesome picture of the bride who had finally eloped to Vegas to marry the man of her dreams. Don’t you just love the whole look and how rad does the jacket look with her kickass red dress – Goals right there! 

Here are some more close up shots for you to feast your eyes over. My 2018 books are now closed but if you are looking for your very own personalised handcrafted leather jacket for 2019 then contact me today so we can discuss!

Punk Rock Pizza Elopement Styled Photoshoot

Omg! Pizza elopement…. well who wouldn’t want to get married in a pizza place – How cool

A few months back I was contacted by the lovely Nina who runs Wedded Kiss, she had absolutely fallen in love with my jackets and wanted to feature them in a shoot that they were organising.

I absolutely love being involved in shoot and this one sounded exciting so I said yes, They were going for a rockabilly / punk rock theme so I thought my white heart breaker and pink wifey jacket would be perfect! so I popped them in the post and prayed they would arrive safely in America ready for the shoot.

It’s so great to see so many ideas for wedding these day and you don’t have to stick with the traditions – I mean who wants that!

You should defiantly bring YOUR personality into it no matter what and that is defiantly what this styled shoot was all about.

Pizza, style and most of all a loving couple which the photographer Arika Jordon captured beautifully.

Feast your eyes on these beauties and then maybe go plan a wedding with pizza involved!
