Having owned a number of leather purses and other types leather goods with raw insides, it has a tendency to get burnished over time, just plain rubbing/ handling will smooth it out eventually.

No idea how long it will take though.
Yeah. The largest problem is the belt. It sticks to the tunic like glue ><. So much so that when I've fastened the belt and then tried to adjust the tunic so it's not all bunch up in the front I actually ripped the seam of one of the belt loops.
I could try that on a test piece, see what happens.
