"Hi Clothsurgeon, can you make....."

The answer is usually yes,

but recently, I was asked to make a full fur gillet, the customer was quite specific with what he wanted and how he wanted it to look, which is always good as you have an initial direction, but it was going to be tricky piece to make.

I decided to use Fox fur as it was perfect for what the client wanted, facing in Nappa Leather, with silk-satin lining.

Sewn on a specialist fur machine, where you feed the fabrics through, right side to right side, tucking in the fur as you sew, the machine doesnt stitch flat, its fed from left to right almost in an arial manner. Wonderful invention.

Happy customer :)
