Straitjacketed.com Action Shots!

Hot off the press! Or should it be "Straight from the CF card"? I just got some great images from Kevin at Straitjacketed.com of the gear set I made for him a few weeks ago - which he so generously allowed me to post. Thank you, Kevin! It looks incredible, and I'm just so happy with how everything turned out. 

To me a project just isn't complete until it's actually used, and this is the culmination of all that effort: design sketches, drawings, making patterns, cutting, sewing, gluing, punching, grommeting, lacing, and finally wearing, shooting and sharing. These great photos are the end result. It makes all the work worthwhile, especially when it turns out so beautifully. This girl is gorgeous!

I love Kevin's photography work so much. To me, it just has the look that says "instant classic". He has the feel to me of Irving Klaw or John Willie. His girls are just beautiful - sexy girl-next-door types, and the poses are pin-up perfect. Just look at those pointed toes, the high arch on the booties. I love her eyes, and the way the hood frames her face... Plus, her hair even matches the color of the leather. Great job Kevin, and thanks for sharing. We're not worthy...

  1. Hello Christopher...
    That set turned out so cute...Unwonrn, the booties looked like harlekin-shoes, but now the way they shape the feet are just perfect.
    Read your blog from the first day and commit I really love your work. As a DIY-guy myself I really worship he patterns you post.
    Hope to show you some of my own work soon.
    Keep sewin´
