The ladies straitjacket
This piece was a custom design for a client at straitjacketed.com, which is an awesome site for people like me.
One thing I didn't take into account when making this jacket was the amount of leather it would take to make all those straps. Can you believe there are over 200 linear inches of straps on this jacket? That's over 16 feet of straps! Whew...
One detail I like on this jacket are the zips at the wrists. The fit is very close, and in order to make the hand fit through we put in the zippers. That was the client's idea - I can't take credit for it. I also really like the way the black and red contrasting colors came out. It just turned out great!
