Am I alright posting just belts in the clothing area? I get so confused!  Undecided

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  Sad 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!  Smiley )

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:

Wow!!! I like the dress and what you did with your fabrics.
The first one is more stylish, and the second one adds some extra flavour to the dress, very matching both!
You look good in it! I also like your glasses.
Oh and what is that painting on the wall behind you? The blue one?

I like, the brown belt with the turqois ribbon is my favourite. How do they tie, is there a belt clip or do you just make a bow?
