Sew Along 2020!

Sew Along 2020! オイルスキンを縫う

Well, one of the things I'm dreading trying this year is making a jacket out of Merchant & Mills dry oil skin. I made a waist bag once last year, so I know it's not difficult to sew.

Unlike ordinary oil skin, dry oil skin is light and thin. Although it is waterproof, the texture is not much different from ordinary high-density cotton. Therefore, unlike paraffin-treated canvas, the edge of the fabric is usually finished with a zigzag sewing machine or a lock sewing machine.

However, there is one point to be aware of. that it cannot be ironed. Therefore, it is recommended to fold it with a sewing spatula.

Here is a jacket made from oilskin.


and TN31

This time we also have strings and ribs in stock, so we plan to prepare both as a kit.

Let's make it together!

As an aside, TN31 is also great made with thick fabrics such as tweed and quilting! My dream is to sew with Harris Tweed, which I bought in Edinburgh last year. Is it possible to do it like this?
