Finally–the long-awaited beltmaking tutorial! way I make my fabric-covered belts has been learned from a mix of trial-and-error and vintage manuals. The supplies are simple, and making a simple pass-through belt is quite easy. I have, however, included instructions for how to add a pronged buckle to a belt and add eyelets. I hope you enjoy, and as usual feel free to ask any questions in the comments! Supplies: 1″ wide stiff belting (available at JoAnns), 1/4 yard fabric at least 45″ wide, buckle for 1″ belt (see sources at the end), pattern paper, thread, scissors, ruler, pins.
This tie is remarkably simple to sew and makes the perfect Father's Day present. It is put together in basically the same way as the Little Boy's Tie we posted around Easter with a few small differences in the beginning. (That's why a lot of the pictures are of the little boys fabric.)
Difficulty: ** You will need: gabardine; lining; fusing; 1 zipper; 3 buttons. Attention! Fabric consumption varies depending on the size of garment.

This is my documentation of a new project I just completed yesterday. It's my first attempt at T.R. pattern making which is a little known Japanese pattern making technique.

I have to admit to not liking this design very much. While it may be popular and stable, aesthetically it simply doesn’t work. Furthermore, puting them on and taking them off can be quite a stretch. They are comfortable however. The racer back tank suit does help teach a very important lesson. That a strap can apparently go around a corner while staying straight.
Aujourd'hui, c'était journée coupe à plat. En effet, j'ai trouvé dans une librairie un livre sur la coupe à plat qui me semblait intéressant puisque différents des livres que l'on trouve d'habitude. Déjà, les modèles de transformations sont sympas et vont au delà du simple déplacement de pinces.
I made this thing. It’s pretty cool. It’s a convertible dress that’s basically a circle and two straps, so it’s really easy, inexpensive, and crazy versatile. It’s been around forever and everyone seems to love it (in fact, part of the reason I’m posting this is to answer some questions for people I’ve run into), and I can hardly believe how close I came to not making it at all.
