I've been wanting to make a harness for ages and finally did it yesterday. It's not perfect... there's some improvement needed, but it turned out better than I expected. For the next one I'm going to use a thicker fabric for the inner layer and will adjust the cut to make it fit better. Just thought I'd share a picture of Lilo modelling it. :p

Very nice looking harness. I wish I could sew.

p.s instead of wastin fabric that wont be seen inside the layers see if u can find interfacing around you or online. there's many different kinds but i love the iron on ones for lighter materials or u can work with a fleece interfacing which is a bit tougher to sew but well worth the sturdiness <3 hope this helps!

Awww brilliant! I noticed the pic first and thought the harness was store-bought, then I noticed your description. Lilo is a very beautiful model! I can't seem to make harnesses only clothes but need to buy a decent sewing machine as sick of getting sore fingers from hand sewing. You could start your own business :D! x x x

Thanks! That's a good idea, I'll look into it and see if the fabric stores near me sell some. :) And it's very true that the only way to get better is to make mistakes.

Wow very Impressive well done! How did you make it?
I like the idea of having a handmade one as I could personalise it, it looks so cute x
Thanks! :) Yeah that's the great thing about handmade things, being able to get exactly what you want and the right size. I made the pattern based on a vest harness I already have. Maybe I'll make a tutorial video (or pictures) next time. :D

Aww thanks! :) I take so many pictures of them, I should probably post some more often. haha

Now you've got me wanting to bust out my sewing machine lol. But I get dizzy looking at that thing. I wouldn't even know where to begin. One project I was thinking about tackling lately is adding Swarovski crystals to some of my dogs buddy belts that don't have them. Just gotta get the tools and figure out what size stones to use. I'll have to post pics of the harnesses and get ideas from you on stone colors to use. That ought to be a simple enough project for me 😍
