Definitely dye the pieces before sewing.

If you had a choice would you recomend dying the leather before or
after you cut/sew the garment. I have 2 hides of a dark Grey that
need to be black for some ren. doublets- and I am not sure wheather
to dye them first or after they are sewn.
I am guessing it would be easyier to dye first. But might get a more
uniform color if you dye second.
Any opinions ?
