Sewing Hint: Pressing Leather

It is ‘taboo’ to press leather with an iron.  I do it anyway.  I test the garment at an inside hem where it is not conspicuous to see if the appearance of the leather is changed.  Remember that heat and steam makes leather brittle, so be very cautious.  Corinthian leather presses much more readily without damage than most other types.
