Okay, it's not really leather, but it sure looks like it.
And it was almost as difficult to work with. The fabric was some kind of fake ultra suede.
And my serger really didn't like it at all. It skipped stitched and generally made serging the edges a challenge. In the end, though, it was worth all the pain: my client loved it!
I especially liked the ottoman. If it wasn't for the gathered skirts, you really would like the chair and ottoman were covered in leather. It's just amazing what they can do with fabrics these days.
On another note, I have been having a lot of trouble with my back again, which has made posting more difficult. It is much better, but still less than ideal.
