Zippered Armbinder on Anna Rose!

I just received some pictures of the zippered armbinder from Anna Rose, of Alterpic and fame. (Thank you, thank you, thank you!) This was the armbinder construction project detailed step-by-step in back in February. She looks just incredible in it, don't you think? I love the action shot!
I was going to post the pattern for this design, but I wanted to make sure everything fit just right first. After seeing the pictures, I feel like I could make a few adjustments to the pattern. It fits nicely in the front, and the straps cross nicely across the chest.
The straps were made extra long, as they could be trimmed down pretty easily. But, I kind of wish the rear panel came up higher... (although this does show off her tattoo). I feel like it could go up another 3 or 4 inches... Plus, the bottom of the arm pocket could be a little tighter - I see wrinkles. =0( I do like the fit of the hand pocket, though.

Besides, these days I don't feel like I am done with a project until I've done it at least twice...

Well Anna Rose, what do you think? Let me know, and thanks again for letting me post the pix.


  1. Christopher,

    There's something odd with the fitment of this armbinder. As cool as it looks, something looks as though it was off in the measurements giving a generically sized unit, which I know isn't the case as you do everything custom.

    Am I correct in that you made the regular leather armbinder for mylovelytoy? The fitment of that shows more accurate measurements aside from the hand portion.

    Anyway, blathering on...

    Thanks for sharing. :)


  2. wow so nice, congratulations Christopher, you are making a great job, i just cant wait to have the patterns for make me one !!!

  3. Dear Lord,

    I'll post here when the pattern is up. Thank you!

  4. spunk69monkey,
    I think I could have made this come up a bit higher on the arm, as Anna Rose is quite tall, and therefore long limbed... I want to make that edit to the pattern before I post as well. Sizing and fit is everything!!

  5. Hi! The arm binder is very restrictive yet comfortable and so pretty! i love it. Thank you very much for making it for me!!! :o)
