Belt

Last update: March 16, 2010

Mirror Dress ~ Belt ~ Brooch ~ Crown ~ Cloaks

The first belt I made was too wide and I had done it all in lace. When I decided to redo the belt, I went with a silky material and used two layers of it, sewing them together with the seams on the edges. Then, I tried a few different things on a scrap piece. Liquid sequins- a fabric paint with sparkles in it didn't give me the effect I liked. And gluing on sparkles didn't either. Once I got the pearls and sequins I thought I might be able to glue them on... but it was tedious and I figured, for all this work, I might as well sew it on. Which is what I did. It took me about 1/2 an hour per every 3 inches of pearls...
