Pleated Belt

I'm still here! 

I went back to school (work) this week so I'm back to having not as much time to do what I really want to do.  

HOWEVER, I've found some time to make an awesome pleated belt!

I was really intrigued by See Kate Sew's Pleat Week series.
I've never sewn pleats before but really want to try it out on something.

I think these are knife pleats?? With a box pleat in the back??

I have a lot of ribbon so used two pretty black ribbons and sewed them down really close to the edges.
(Oh, what a horrible picture....but the best I could manage at night, with a flash and a school-fogged brain)

I really love it! And I'm pretty impressed with how well it turned out. 

Now I just have to figure out what to wear with it and find some confidence that I can actually pull off wearing something like this.

If nothing else, I actually used my dress form!!

  1. Amazing work.
    The Mr. Pleater Board would be a great addition to your designing tools.
    It helps to create pleats and tucks, in a fast/easy fashion.
