Belt

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.
