    Default Repairing sheepskin east front jacket.

    Hello,


    I am thinking of buying an east front sheepskin coat, it has a large hole in the shoulder - not a war time hole, just a huge tear from years of neglect.
    My sister is a TV wardrobe girl and believes she can do the fine grade leather sewing.

    It's a non-primo example of such a coat, and I would like to use a patch - anyone have any ideas where I could find a piece of suitable sheepskin to patch the hole?

    What would the wermacht have used?

    Be nice if it was old material being used for the patch - I'm going to check out a few thrift stores, but really just throwing it out there to see if someone else had done such a thing and what route they had taken.

    Ref. leaving it as it is - it's non-displayable as is -


    Thanks all,


    Pit.

    You can purchase sheepskin reasonably cheap at Tandy leather goods. You can then "dirty" it up a bit and I believe you can achieve the effect you are looking for. Failing that, I suggest you go to some garage sales and look for an older one.

    Thanks Ralph -

    I think I'll try to find some suitably dog eared to match the rest of the jacket.
