Hello peeps,

It’s been long since we had a post on DIY Fashion. We apologise on that part, the past month has been pretty crazy with the holiday season and setting up resolutions and priorities as the year drew to an end. We have load of exciting things lined up for Monoxious this year. Do watch out for them.

Today we present something which we have been procrastinating for quite a while (which is not good since fashion waits for no one.) and raved about it back here. We finally got round to doing it after I managed to find some awesome trimmings which I though would be ideal for this little DIY project. We teach you how to make your own Elastic Harness which is inspired by Jean Pierre Braganza’s S/S 2009 (SO LAST YR OMG!!!!)

These are what you will need. We forced Dawn’s cat to be in this photo but umm… she doesn’t like being our model.

  • Elastics (approx 5yards)
  • Trimmings with hook and eye
  • Pins
  • Black thread
  • Dress form (not pictured)
  • Optional: Black Sock cat (for entertainment)

Start pinning your elastics to the dress form. There’s really no rules on how it should go on, we left the fastening in front so it’s easier to wear.

Just keep doing it until you’re satisfied or run out of elastics. Start marking them with white tailor chalk so you know which strap goes where. I find numbering them useful.

I marked the lines a little further as you can see as elastics are stretchable and you would want the harness to be slightly snug when wearing.

Sew all the straps together~!!!! It might be a bit of a trouble cause you might get confused so so many similar straps hanging around. Again, I numbered my pieces so I know which one goes where, but that’s the way I roll, you might find some other methods useful too.

And here’s the completed piece~!!!

We hope you’ve enjoyed this DIY Clothes tutorial and hopefully you find it useful~ We would love to see examples that you have made, just link back to this page on your blog when you are showcasing yours. Thank you~!!

Also, we welcome all comments, questions and suggestions for future DIYs. Please let us know what you would like to see.

    A DIY of the pleasure principle tank dress would be nice! How is it holding up, do you still wear it often?

    Arissa replied on

    i seem to be wearing it less often actually. But it’s holding up fine. it’s more complex to make so a DIY might be inappropriate

  6. […] DIY Clothes Tutorial: Making an Elastic Harness I kind of love the idea of making one of these elastic harnesses especially since I’ve NEVER seen a fat person in one of these trend pieces.

    This is very creative, you are awesome! Have you ever made a harness with pockets on the sides for a cell phone? I think that might be a clever way to stash my phone/money/goodies while working.

    We designed it ourselves and refined it along the way. We had a developer to code the site for us. It shouldn’t be hard to find one who can do the same thing.
