Also, everything must be lined with a soft lining so that the fabric itself does not rub.
Also for such a harness it is better just take quite a tough cloth so that the animal could not tear it or easily crack it. Then on one side of the piece (previously cut, 2 strips) you need to make 2 loops into which you then thread the ring. In order to fasten the buckle at the very bend, a seam number 2 is made.
On the other side of the strip, thanks to the awl, holes are created, and the space between them should be at least 1 cm. Another strip is taken from the material, the length of which you need to calculate this: the length between the lines plus 10 cm to the seams. This strip also needs to be trimmed with a soft cloth.
