I'll show you how to easily sew a decorative buckle belt that can be used to embellish a dress, for example.
For this belt I used :
- A strap with 40mm width. Calculate the needed quantity:
- the belt = your waist measurement+20cm
- the loop = 10CM
Step 1: place the braid trim
Sew the edges of the lace braid trim to fix it along its entire length.
Step 2: the buckle
Tuck your strap into the buckle and fold over 1cm. Stitch by hand to make sure it's secure.
Step 3: the loop
Make the loop with a 10cm piece of strap and guipure sown as in step 1. Make a loop and overlap right sides together at 1cm. Sew it like this:
I recommend applying a little fray check glue to the edge, which will help resist wear and tear. Fold over and flatten the small ends with an iron, turn your loop inside out and pass your belt through it.
All that remains is to close the end of your belt with a hand stitch to make it look pretty.
Your decorative belt is ready !
