Whew, between spring cleaning and my fear of buttonholes, progress has been rather slow on the jacket, so it was an interesting diversion to try to figure out how to make a belt for the ensemble. I’m afraid it isn’t very authentic or precise; I had a tough time finding a pattern to suit my needs, so one day at the store I gathered possible materials and just used one of my belts for a model.
It’s a tight affair, getting the belt through the buckle, but that will hopefully loosen up soon. I also need to put a loop for the belt end to go through. But overall, I think it turned out fairly well.
Next up, buttonholes (cringe) ….
