When shopping for belts, I always have to choose if I’ll be wearing it at the waist or the hips, as few belts will fit me in both places well. On a dressmaking project a few months ago, I sought an editing eye from Mike to see if a belt was needed to complete the look. We both agreed a belt would look better, but we disagreed on where the belt should sit. I wanted it high up on my (mostly nonexistent) waist, and he thought it would look better on the hips. Since I was making the belt myself and was planning on using a 2 piece vintage belt buckle, I came up with a way to make the belt so I could wear it however the mood struck.
You can see the tutorial for this belt on my blog A Few Threads Loose at http://afewthreadsloose.blogspot.com/2010/10/adjustable-belt-tutorial.html
