Here's another confession--I have a love/hate relationship with harnesses.
More accurately, I should say that it's a hate/love relationship because the hating part comes first. I just do not like making harnesses. Specifically, I don't like all the prep work that goes into making a harness. I don't like spending hours and hours skiving lace. I don't like preparing all those buckles. And the keepers--oh, there are just so many keepers!
Part of me was hoping the mailman would deliver my Rio Rondo box today. That would have given me a perfect excuse to put Vicky's harness aside in favor of a less tedious project. Sadly, the mail gods were not smiling down on me. I received one bill and a couple advertisements for local businesses. There was no way to avoid that harness.
Here is what it looks like now.
This is where the love part comes in. There is something so undeniably elegant about a harness! I love the way all those carefully skived straps drape across the model's body, and who can resist the sparkle of all those little buckles? Not me, that's for sure. As much as I dislike the harness making process, I sure do love the results!
