    I have been wanting to make one of these, but kept thinking that the belt needed to be attached to the skirt. Great idea with the removable piece.

      Thanks! I wanted the dress to be a pullover style for comfort’s sake and I thought it would change the look entirely if I used a different belt from time to time. It also made the construction of the dress a lot easier!
