Description

I am making a spring trench coat and after making the belt, I realized that I wanted a buckle. So I decided to try my hand at making one, and it worked so well, that I thought I would share!

If you want to try your hand at making one (no crazy hard-to-find kits necessary), check out my blog entry HERE

    Thanks for sharing! I have thought several time how I would make a belt that matches a dress/shirt/bag/whatever where I didn’t have to get a kit. Like your blog too :-)
