Custom Fabric Belt
Fabric belt constructed from fabric sent to me by the client and a vintage metal belt buckle from my collection. Fabric was reinforced with iron-on fabric interfacing and sewn over 1 3/4 inch elastic. Green top stitching, purple under stitching. This ought to provide a substantial belt that is firm enough to be functional, yet be soft and comfortable to wear without creasing or folding. The belt was steam shaped over a pressing ham at various stages of construction to provide a natural curve and roll.
I enjoyed figuring out how to make this belt.
