Pantry Supplies: Scissors, fabric glue, needle and thread.
2// Begin by laying your fabric out length-wise. You'll want a fabric's width to be long enough for a skirt. Mine was 48 inches wide, so I had plenty of extra fabric. With the fabric glue, attach the belt on the buckle side along the width to create the top of the skirt. You'll want to leave roughly eight inches of the extra fabric on the end.
3// Glue the belt all along the skirt until you reach the buckle hole that fits you. Trim the extra fabric by rounding it to the bottom hem. This will create a layered look for the front of the skirt.
4// With the extra fabric near the end of the belt buckle, create a small button hole at the end of the fabric. If you don't have a sewing machine, you can hand stitch it easily. Cut a small hole, and stitch all along the edges to prevent it from fraying. It will casually stretch as you're stitching the edges, so start by cutting the hole half the size of the button to prevent it from being too loose. Lastly, attach the button on the inside of the belt. To get it in the right place, wrap your skirt around your waist and see where the button hole hits on the inside of the skirt. This step prevents a large split in the skirt so you can wear it without worrying if it will gape open.
I'm looking forward to creating this project in lots of different colors and possibly a few prints as well. The possibilities are endless!
