Hello retro lovers, I’ve written a tutorial on how to make a bow belt like the one above. I made this to go with my McCalls 6120 dress, simplifying the process a little as I couldn’t understand the instructions. To make your own bow belt, see my blog, Tilly and the Buttons ;)

I love that you posted this belt! I made one like this for a dress years ago from a pattern and I do remember it being more difficult than it should have been.

I made a few at the time (black, red and white) and find myself always reaching for them because they are perfect with just about any vintage or vintage styled dress.

Mine are looking ratty so I can't wait to try it your way and make new ones.
