Description

This is the belt sewing pattern designer Sean Cabezas created to compliment his high waist, tiered Sean Skirt.

We made our version in a subtle, animal-printed suede, but you could also try upholstery fabric, leather or cotton canvas. If you’re not crazy about the shape, this belt makes a good pattern block to create a unique belt shape of your own. Go wild with multiple variations.

Material Notes

For sizes 34-44: 3/4 – 7/8 yards (0,60 – 0,70 m.) leather or medium – heavy weight material. Interfacing

    I have to say I am more than happy to pay three bucks for a great belt I will wear all the time, and potentially make over and over from leftover fabric. Sure I could have come up with this myself, but the fact is i didn’t! And now I don’t have to!

    I’m sorry, but this is just daylight robbery! Just by looking at it, I can see the pattern and I’m not that experience a seamstress. Did people actually ask for this pattern to be published for sale?

    $3 is £2 and i wouldn’t pay £2 for that piece of fabric belt let alone the pattern. Sorry to be harsh but this is a major filler pattern.

      I agree with you totally. I like the belt, but I could easily make it myself without a patter and you can find fabrics to make it for less than £2.

    The belt is great! But the price is shocking me!!! This is too simple and we can design it by ourself easily!

    $3 for a belt pattern? Too expensive.

    i’ll admit that i’m a little disappointed that i have to pay for the belt pattern on top of the skirt, however i’m glad that the pattern is finally here! Thanks guys!

    That is precisely what I look for in the shops (without success). I´m happy I can make my own now!

    Great belt! I’ve never worked with leather. Maybe a tutorial would be a good idea.
