DIY Maid Harness/Belt
Some lovely people have asked how I made my apron-styled harness for my Halloween outfit, so here it is!
Materials and equipment you will need:
- Measuring tape
- Pleather - 0.5 x 1.0 metres/yards should be plenty
- Craft foam - I used 1mm thick foam but you can use thicker foam for a chunkier look
- Buckles x 3
Paper fasteners, or actual rivets x 4
- Hot glue gun
Scissors - fabric and craft
- Needle and thread or sewing machine
In this I’ll be using craft foam with fleece-backed pleather to create the look of a thick leather belt. You can use actual belt weight leather strips instead for a more authentic look. Also, the back bow of my harness is a detachable bow from a handbag, but you can make some extra straps and assemble a bow from them yourself.
