Belt Fall Harvest Dress

front of belt
So as I said I wanted a belt for the dress I was modifying for my daughter to wear to the fall harvest formal.  I decided on a cumber-bun belt that was in a pattern I have from the 1950's Simplicity 2089.
back of belt I had a  size 13 pattern which is a 25 inch waist  in the 1950's my daughter has a 26 inch waist plus we wanted a little growing room as the dress has a bigger waist than that too.  Since my daughter is just a little bit bigger than that pattern I added an extra panel at the center back where the snaps are located to lengthen it.  All the belt truly is, is a very large rectangle with soft pleats that is cut on the bias thus it can stretch and fit the couture of the body better.  Did not need a pattern to make it but always nice to have one so I do not have to figure it out all the time.  Belt looks twisted in the top photo but the wrinkles will lay flat I just did not play with them before the photo.  Also this belt took about 10 mins to make from start to finish.  Made out of bright orange poly satin, seam binding, and 4 real large snaps.
