Description

Black waist belt to go with high waisted pencil skirts, capris etc…

I doubled the width that I wanted the belt to be, then added 2 cm for seam allowance. I measured another waist belt of mine to find the right length – it was roughly 12cm longer than my waist measurement, to allow for seam allowance and some extra length to come out the other side of the buckle.

To sew the belt I folded the fabric in half, lengthways and ‘inside out’ – the under side of the fabric facing you. Stitched along with a 1 cm hem. Then turned the belt inside out and ironed it with the seam in the centre.

My buckle had that small centre piece for holes so I took that off, after getting angry that I couldn’t find any pliers and spending forever using whatever I could find to pry it off with. Then I connected one end to the centre of the buckle, stitched that in place. Then I made a triangle end on the other side of the belt.

ET VOILA!
