Can you upgrade your leather armour to legendary in Skyrim?

I got Skyrim last week and have been playing a lot of it. I am using leather armour (fine) and was wondering if you could upgrade it further. So I searched it on google and I found out that armour and weapons could be upgraded to a legendary level but I don't have that option with my leather armour. Can leather armour be upgraded further or is the legendary upgrade for higher tier armour only?Can you upgrade your leather armour to legendary in Skyrim?
No, even if you get the Smithing skill up to 100 you can only make leather armour 'Flawless'. That's as high as any armour or weapon will go without the smithing perk for that class. If you have the perk you can improve that class of armor much sooner.

For example i'm using steel armor, without the 'Steel Smithing' perk i can only improve my Steel Armor and weapons to a certain point.

If my smithing skill is 30 or under i can only make it 'Fine'

If my smithing skill is between 31-64 i can make it 'Superior'

65-99 'Exquisite'

100 'Flawless''

But if I do have the Steel Smithing Perk then it's like this.

20 or below 'Fine'

21-40 'Superior'

41-60 'Exquisite'

61-80 'Epic'

81-100 'Legendary'

The point is, as there is no perk for Leather smithing, you can't get it higher than Flawless. I'd recommend the Advanced Armour Perk. It will let you craft Scaled Armor. it is as light as Leather Armour but stronger than Steel Armor.
You can indeed upgrade your leathers to legendary. Enchant fortify smithing onto several items and boost the skill to around 200%. Potions will also help. If you can do this you probably do not need any of the smithing perks.put them into enchanting instead.
