Butterfly SJ with Padded Hood Studio Shots

I love how this jacket came out... It's so surreal and otherworldly. Must do more with foam, layering and reinforcement. So much still to do...

    1. It laces on pretty quickly... only a couple of minutes maybe? I am using two laces though. It would be cleaner looking (and take longer) with a single lace.

  4. Hi Christopher,
    I just would like to know, how did the slave to put her arms (and mainly her wrists also) into the armpocket? I don't see any zip on armpockets anywhere and I cannot imagine how could she dress up into this tight shoulder hole without zip?

    1. Yeah, there's no zip. The first design prototypes I did included a zipper (as with the leg pockets). But it turned out she could squeeze in without it, even with a relatively small opening.

      One thing you'll see that has evolved over the years is the size of the arm pocket: it's gotten progressively smaller, and more fitted. It's like walking a tightrope though: I want it as tight as can be, but if it's tight in the wrong area, it can be uncomfortable… and that can limit the amount of time in the restraint.

  5. Thank You very much for Your fast and informative response! Sorry for my poor english grammar (I'm from Hungary), but I am one of admirers and fan of You who's always marveling at Your works and is awaiting Your next post eagerness and big interest. :)
    I think, this butterfly jacket is extremely beautiful, but progression of tightness is mainly depend on flexibility and gender of victim and of course on duration of wearing. :)
    I like to having fantasies about long-time restraining in this kind of butterfly jacket, but at the same time I know quite clearly, that it is impossible in deed. Unfortunately... :)
    Sincerely Yours and wishing for every success to You in subsequent leather project!
