Suede Dress with Obi Belt

Added Nov 13, 2017

by Eli Cat

Tokyo, Japan






I made this dress and two belts. I used soft suede polyester for the dress. I combined black faux leather for the armhole and pocket opening.
The three-buckle belt made of a black genuine leather. The beige version is a trial. I made them with a normal sewing machine.

    How beautiful Eli, I like both the dress and the belts, so stylish. You can pop up almost every garment with these belts.

    What an interesting thing! This belt really influences at the perception of all clothes – makes a good definition! Was it difficult to sew the faux leather with the ordinary machine?

      Thank you for your lovely comment! It was not difficult to make. I could sew these belts with the normal machine:)
