However, compared to heavy clear vinyl, this leather was quite easy to sew. I was able to complete this entire suit it about 1 week of evenings and one weekend.
It has outlasted a commerically made leather suit that I have purchased prior to my learning how to sew!
I had to retire this suit not because of wear, but because I had an accident where I had spilled some paint onto the pants.
The shirt is still in excellant conditon after 10 years and I gave it to a friend who told me it looks like brand new.
