Belt Loop Tutorial

One of my favorite things to wear is a skirt. It can be dress down casual or off to a dinner date with a quick change of accessories. One of the quickest ways to make your look more dressy is to tuck in your shirt and wear a belt. That is why I have created this little tutorial on how to make your own belt loops.
Sometimes you create a pair of pants, shorts or skirt, and it does not come with belt loops. Here is how you can create your own.
1.) Cut five pieces of fabric measuring 3" X 2".

2.) Fold and press each piece wrong sides together 1/4" along the short edge side. Then press and fold each piece in half, wrong sides together, long ways. Finally fold and press each long raw edge toward the center crease.

3.) Sew the loop tab 1/8" around the edges.

4.) Place the first loop at the back center seam. Measure around the waist line and evenly pin the other loops in place.

5.) Sew the belt loops at the top and bottom to secure them to the garment. Now you can wear your garment with a belt!
