Description

A-line linen tube dress, fabric straps, wide belt in linen and leather. Improvised.

I built the belt around this asymmetrical scrap of leather that I’d found in a fabric store. I placed it on the linen fabric and cut out two pieces of linen that were about an inch wider than the leather, which then tapered off to long ties. I sewed the linen into a belt and then hand-stitched on the leather.

This was my first dress, so I’m quite pleased with myself! :)

    Hi, wondering what size/type needle and thread you used to sow the leather on linen?

    If this is your first creation, I can’t wait to see what else you make! I love the belt, also did you make the bracelets? They are adorable.
