I does has cold. And a fairly busy day. But I got a self-belt made for the dress I’m making. I don’t like an exposed waist seam, it seems… unfinished.
This is a glorified hook and eye closure (for a tunic). I covered a grosgrain ribbon with my fashion fabric, sewing the closure on so as to fit tight at the waist. No pattern.
The bodice is cut and ready to go, and I sewed the lining the other day. Just waiting to sew up the outside and get everything joined.
