A brief look at the strappy hood and body harness project...
We start with the leather and a straightedge.
Cut a bunch of strips. 1.625" wide.
Turn and sew the edges. Use the edge-guide. It helps.
First side done:
You'll end up with a whole bunch of straps:
Neatly wound up:Next, cut the other parts. Collar, arm and leg openings, crotch piece.
Rivet 'em together.
Work your way around the side and back.
Then the straps.
You'll need a round strap for the top:
Glue and fold before sewing.
Tape in place, then rivet.
Front strap, riveted:
Tape side strap in place...
Lots of rivets!
Have fun with your new toys!
