O.k., so this is waaay low-end compared to all you amazing ladies (and gents!) who can whip up an outfit in no time, but it's a pretty useful tip so I thought maybe I would share.

Anyway, I have this really cute shirt-dress that I never wore because the belt kind of tied funny. The belt loops were way low on my hips, and the narrow belt cut into my waist and made me look kind of dumpy.  LIke this:

But then I was playing with a necklace of mine that I had made with two half-hitch knots (the kind where you tie each end to the string so that you can slide the knots back and forth to make an adjustable band, if that makes any sense). And I realized- why not do the same thing to my belt?  So I took the skinny string and re-tied it like so:

The knots look like this:

Which made a nice wide belt that I could easily adjust.  No bulky bows or ties, and it sits way better on the waist! Voila!

Hope those directions were clear, feel free to ask any questions if they weren't!
