Free Tutorial, Pirate Corset Belt
Easy Sewing Project
To make the corset belt I measured my daughter's waist, which was 20". I decided to cut it 4" shorter to leave some space for the ribbon to be tied across her waist, therefore I cut the belt fabric 16" wide by 4" in length (x2 pieces). To make the ruffle, I used a 3" x 60" piece of red fabric and to make the loops I used four pieces of ½" wide ribbon cut about 3" long. The satin ribbon pictured above is what I used to thread through and tie the belt together.
