It has been a LONG time since I've posted anything on here. I've become more of a lurker. I saw the BEAUTIFUL recycled necktie belt not too long ago and decided I HAD TO HAVE IT. However, as some of you can relate, my fabric stash is overflowing and my space wont allow me to buy any new materials. I had some trashy leopard print faux fur left over from some softies I made for a gallery last year and thought "hey why not, who cares if I look like Peg Bundy". Basically this is just a rectangle cut to go around my waist minus about an inch. Since I went around the edges in bias tape, it is reversible. The other side is some equally trashy red satin (which by the way is an ASS when trying to insert grommets). I feel like the red side is a little too pirate-ish. Could I get away with it and not look like a beer wench?

I'm not a fan of leopard prints, but I'd wear it. Prolly not so much on the red side though.That's just me. I love these style of belts, corset and obi style.

All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.

I think the red side looks awesome with the outfit you have on...  Not piraty at all.

that's so cute.  maybe it's the white shirt that's making it look a little pirate/wench-y?  maybe if you tried a different shirt?  but to be honest, even with that shirt i still think it looks cute.

My goodness, thank you cathiphop. My husband says its cute, but sometimes I worry he doesn't realize I look like a hooker in some of the things he thinks are "cute".
