These SnK straps are confusing . Here is a colored diagram of straps placement. I colored in half the straps so repeat pattern on both sides. Dashed lines show where the strap is behind your body. I recommend you use a dress form or have a friend help you. If you use nylon straps be sure to leave extra length so you can tuck the straps so it does not unravel when you are sewing it together. Use pins or safety pins to align everything in place.
- Yellow -> Blue X -> Yellow
- Yellow -> Purple X -> Yellow (you may also attach the blue strap to a low point of the purple strap under-behind the armpit. Example.)
- Green strap is a figure 8 with the Orange V added to the outside of the leg. The Green strap makes an X under the side squares to hold up the belts and blade boxes. I would recommend adding at least one belt loop on the inner thigh for each thigh belt so it doesn’t slip down.
-Red circles are where the Pink elastic attaches.
