A double d-ring cotton belt was purchased from a thrift store. Holes were marked so that a pistol harness could be attached and worn comfortably by a person with a small or large frame. A scratch awl was used to make 3/16" (4mm) holes in the fabric without cutting fibers. Eyelets were inserted in the holes and crimped with an eyelet tool. The vest was assembled and tested well.
