I made this leather halter for the steampunk swap. I got the leather jacket from a thrift store--loved the brown, it made me think of a steampunk aviator. The other bits and pieces are from my stash.

Front


Back


Adjustable chain closures plus awesome red snap button!


Strap decorations, there are four total, one each on the front and back of each strap.


And just for fun, the steampunky stamped label I made for the box I wrapped the halter in:


Hope you like!
