Hi Everyone!
Here is my first ever tutorial – I thought I’d share here too but it’s over at my BLOG if you want to ask questions (I’ll answer quicker there). The pics are bigger there too since this format is narrower than my blog. :-)

Wonderful instructions very clearly presented.
Love the snaps instead of punching holes!
(Hope there’s an orange dress coming soon, to match the last belt!)

Wow, these are great instructions! I’ve got a couple of vintage patterns traced and altered to fit, and know the dresses will look better with belts once they’re finished. You have made it so I don’t *dread* making the belts! YAY.

I love the look of self fabric belts. I have seen a couple of ways of getting them together, but your tutorial gives a really nice finish. Thanks!
