What Does It Look Like When You Combine Dragon Scales With Fur?

Today I would like to invite you into my world of fashion design and leather crafting. I will take you with me on a journey of sorts into the creation of a custom leather costume, beginning with the request. I was asked if I would make something like this...four pieces; a shrug, a halter top, a belt/skirt/chaps piece, and boot covers.
