The Crucial Factor of This Belt Is Taking the Measurement

Steps to Follow

Step one: The first step is all about the measurement. If you don’t take the proper measurement, your belt will not only look bad, but it can also affect your performance. That’s why you need to take a long piece of non-stretchable fabric that will be the base of the belt.

Step two: Wrap the fabric around your waist where you will wear the belt. Make sure you are wearing thin leggings. Pin down the material on the pant, so you will not see what you need. Make it as fit as possible.

Step three: Take the fabric pen and mark down the shape of the belt according to how you want it. Take the fabric off your waist. Now cut the fabric according to the shape you have just created.

Step Four: Take the top fabric and start stitching it on the base fabric. You need to be careful on this part to make the stitch look good.

Step five: Attach the hooks where you want them to be. You can use additional pins to make the belt tighter or less.
