- Reasonably Priced
I made this for a burlesque show and I was performing a set based on a pin-up housewife going crazy and being taken offstage in a straitjacket.
First, I used a couple of old used Chef coats (I used to be in cooking school) and took off the front buttonned lappels so I could wear the jacket with the opening to the back. Then I added lenght to the sleeves and closed the ends. I sew on some velcro at the neck so it could stay attached at the top without an extra belt piece. I used polypropylene belt material and bought a couple packs of D shaped loops to act like belt fasteners. I had to scorch the ends of the belt material after cutting it so it wouldn't ripple off. Added the last belt to the sleeves at a comfortable lenght, yet all the belts grip on the loop fasteners very well and can be secured to the desired tightness.
