A new belt for my new dress

I am a sucker and a half for DIY blog posts. I love when other crafters share sewing ideas with their readers. When I saw this Bow Belt Tutorial by Tilly and the Buttons I knew I would have to try it out one day.

Well the need for a belt finally came along a couple of weeks ago. While visiting my sister we made a quick stop at a thrift store and I found the sweetest vintage plaid dress. It fits me perfectly but it was missing a belt.

So I put this tutorial to good use and made myself a pretty new belt.

I made my belt a little wider than suggested and I love the way it turned out. It was a super easy quick sew. I am sure I will be making more of these in the future.
