Am I alright posting just belts in the clothing area? I get so confused!
Anyways, sadly I don't remember the last time I got my sewing machine out, which makes me really sad, but I think it is linked to the fact this is the first time I've ever made something I am excited about wearing out!
I recently bought a new dress online. I liked its mix of patterns as I love to mix patterns and was excited to get it, unfortunately I didn't notice that it had elastic under the bust and then wasn't waisted - I'm fairly curvy and can end up feeling uncomfortable if the clothes I'm in don't show a waist But in contrast to that I don't own a huge number of belts, and nothing I owned seemed to work.
I was browsing the internets while trying to work out what to do, as I didn't want to send it back as I like the colours a lot, and saw someone wearing an obi style belt and figured it was something even I might be able to pull together. Add to that a trip out the shops, and an hour of so of crafting and I have 2 new belts!!!
Here is a picture that attempts to show the colours and textures:
Here's the brown one with a turquoise ribbon:
(sorry about the stern face - I'm a smiler normally, I'm trying to balance on my sofa, with the camera on a book shelf - too many things to think about! )
And this one is brown with a pink and green pattern on it and a brown ribbon:
and just for reference here is the dress without the belt:
