I did not know or post.

Then here I was offered a leather jacket redskins 8 months ago now and I realized with time that it was too big. Who do I contact and where to shrink a leather jacket to give it a size less? (Sewing? Laundry?) Or so techniques to shrink the leather?

thank you

No technique to shrink the leather!
must give a pro retoucher, who will take your measurements and your size will just

thank you,

a pro retoucher = a dressmaker?

what could be the price of refinishing jacket for shrinking a size in the seamstress ?

Next places (I lived in the Marais, where the retoucher is not the seamstresses) and the Quantity of work, they can do both.
is pretty expensive because everything must be refinished. But prices can be discussed. :-)

Hello All/All

If you can sew, you can retouch your own leather jacket, as well as tissue

* For sewing leather, you need a special needle " triangular "
* To overwrite the seams, we need a glue and a small leather mallet, used to tap the sides of the seam, and put them flat on the inside of the garment.

It's very easy, do not panic with it.

J ' I made several children's clothes with old coats and leather jackets for adults

give touch may be as expensive as buying one!

Good luck
