Medieval Belt

It’s Spring! Happy Ostara, everyone! The Vernal equinox. Winter is over. Spring is the season of creation, and to kick things off, I have made a quick and easy medieval loop belt. I sewed a long tube of hunter green poplin left over from the dress the belt is featured on, and turned it inside out. Then I took a long piece of premade woven jacquard ribbon and sewed it to the poplin tube, flattening it carefully and evenly as I went. I finished the edges with an overlock stitch, and attached two D-rings to one end of the belt. Here you see the belt fastened only using one D-ring, but I put two on there to give myself more tying options in the future. The versatility of every costume item is very important to me; the more styles and functions a piece can serve, the better.
