I know nothing about leather so I'm no help there.
I really love the dress though! I like it better than the Urban Outfitters one. Yours doesn't seem to be way too see-through.
Very cute! Good luck with your jacket. For PVC don't they use baby powder on the machine? Maybe that could work.

I've never really worked with leather, but I read somewhere that baby powder works...  Sorry if I'm wrong.  Sad

But anyways I love the dress!  I think it looks better than the one from Urban Outfitters.  Oh, and I really like the belt with it!  I would totally go for a tutorial!   Cheesy

i don't know if this could work, but i just thought of it: you could put some hmmm powder? (that thing for baby's butts Cheesy i speak spanish, i don't know how to say it in english) or maybe corn starch (the one for cooking) that may help the pleather to slide better.... you have to clean it very very good after, and lubricate well the machine.
if you try this, i would lik to know how does it work Smiley
hope it helps

oh and pretty dress!

Tissue paper (tissue like what you put in gift bags, not like what you blow your nose in) will help A LOT! and it easily tears away when you're done....
