  • Sidetab Question for Men's Buckskin Leggings

    How do you attach the cloth (on the inside) to the side tab for men's buckskin leggings? (southern straight style)

    all help is appreciated! :)

    On both my pairs, the cloth (I've got satin) is edge beaded to the hide. Basically, I just folded under the edge and ironed a crease into the satin , so the creases lined up w/ the edge of the leather.... does that make sense? I know, not the clearest explanation, but you can prolly figure it out.

    I left the part by the leg un-sewn, cause that'll all get sandwiched together when you sew up the legging itself.

    Also, do you have the beaded horsehair tassels on the ends of the tabs? You kinda have to get creative w/ sewing down the fabric right in that area, but on one pair of mine, the cloth is edge-beaded on either side of the tassel, while its just tacked down w/ a few stitches across where the tassel connects.

    Hope this helps....

            Any tips on rolling fringe?
            I just did a set of leggings and if I must say they turned out pretty good, but I ended up making twice as much fringe as I used cause the pieces were a lil inconsistent

            Also, on sewing the tabs down, a lil liquid stitch (like a dozen pin head sized drops) kinda helps just to guide things along.

                  Sewing buckskin with a machine is not fun or easy. Next time put some stitch and tear or even just a piece of paper under the buckskin when rolling it through, loosen your tension and make your stitches longer. When done then tear the paper or stitch and tear away from the stitches. Use a few pieces of wonder under or fabric glue in the center to hold the fabric to the buckskin temporarily... if you ever want to try to go that route again.
