I had made the whole suit and vest for him. Had some health and family issues that made some delays. The vest was too small because the measurements he gave me were incorrect. I told him to send it back and I'd redo it since leather is unforgiving I could make it smaller, but not bigger without remaking it from scratch, which I told him I would do. I also have other commissions after his which I have been working on, but I couldn't move his back to the front of the line. I said I would try to work him back in. I also only buy only enough supplies as I need them per order. The right leather often takes me a week or more to find the right weight, texture and color. I took a couple of weeks just to get more leather...then the work is in between other personal obligations...including family...my mom was in the hospital with pneumonia and A-Fib heart problems. My mate has also been working out of town so when he's home I don't work non-stop on projects. I told him all of this. I have responded to his messages, but now they are non-stop so I stopped answering them this week to try and just work on the project. I have never NOT completed or made right an order in the last 10 years. I've been making mostly 501 costumes.....over 400 of them. So well that's the story. Feel free to pass this on verbatim.
