Once the fabric has been sewn, grade your seam allowances, turn the fabric right side out (a loop turner or bodkin is especially useful in this situation) and then insert your belting. And just so you are aware, this step might take you some time because inserting the belting is like a stuffing a pincushion – not hard, just time consuming. Let’s keep going. Bonus Tip: Once you’ve got the belting in the fabric and all is situated, its a great option to topstitch around the edges to keep the fabric from slip sliding around over the belting. Take a cue from the Anything-But-Basic Belt and use a contrasting handstitch too { http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/anything-but-basic-belt/technique_steps/4 }!
