I confessed before that I was a little sad that I was not going to have a girl that I could sew ruffly dresses for. We went baby clothes shopping right after we found out. As soon as I saw the preppy boys clothes my slight disappointment took a 180. I knew right there that my boy would be a prep as much as possible. Polo shirts, stripy belts, collars, buttoned up, oh yes. I love dressing him up for church.
I think a cute look is tucked in shirts with bright springy belts. So I made this little belt with room to grow. It’s a simple D-ring belt.
2. To figure out how big to make your piece add a few inches to the waist measurement. I measured across 8″ and multiplied by 2, so 16″. Then I added about 5 so it will last a while.
3. The strip should be about 3 1/2″ tall.
4.Fold in half right sides together and press.
7. Turn right side out and turn under the edges 1/4″. Press and topstitch.
10. You are done. Now tuck in your shirt and belt it up!
