Black Elastic Harness
My favorite trim shop here in Mtl is a treasure trove of the most amazing things, including a huge array of new and vintage elastic trims. I’d always loved looking at these trims, but without the perfect project I had to deny myself. Once I dreamed up this elastic harness/belt/suspender type contraption I finally had the excuse I was looking for to go nuts in the trim store!
This particular harness is made of a simple black elastic, with steel clasps and a steel ring at the back. Since the harness is made of elastic it will fit quite a few people, however I’m calling this one a small/medium. The elastic measures 26" around the ribcage, unstretched, and will stretch comfortably up to 30". If you need the fit to be tighter, let me know as this is a fairly easy adjustment to make. If you need a larger size shoot me a message, I’m always open to making custom sizes, equal fashion for all!
IMPORTANT: The original vintage buckle stash that I used for this design has finally run out. I’ve searched high and low and finally found a replacement buckle I’m happy with. This new buckle has a shiny antique nickel finish (buckle is steel) and a unique ball clasp closure. I’ve never seen a buckle like this before and fell in love with it’s sturdiness and uniqueness. I hope you all love it as much as I do! Please see image #5 for an image of this new buckle.
