Does anyone know where (if anywhere) you can buy kits to make self-belts - you know, the ones where both the belt and the buckle are covered with the same fabric as the dress? I haven't seen them at my local fabric store, but its pretty small (not one of the larger chains). An online source, or one in Manhattan/Brookyln would be great. I"ve been making dresses from vintage patterns and really, really want to make some of these as the perfect finishing touch!
Thanks in advance!

are you sure your local store doesn't have them?  because here in nashville you can buy them in every fabric store in town, including the wal-mart fabric section.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure. Its a very small store with a limitted selection - they carry metal belt buckles, but not the kind of kit I'm looking for.

well, i'm not sure where to get it online but i know that prym-dritz sells belting by the yard and in kits with buckles you cover yourself.  you might check their website to see what stores in your area carry the stuff you need.

Thank you! I wouldn't have thought to do that, but i found some local stores that seem to carry their products. Plus, now that I know they have them at walmart, I can ask my mom to pick up a few next time she's there.
