    Anyone seen this anywhere? It's Missoni style striped canvas with a d-ring.

    Hmm...I have a New Look trouser pattern that has sashes like that. It is pattern #6109. Here's the line drawing view from the back of the envelope.

    Normally I don't like Simplicity products very much, but I have made both the trousers and the mock turtle neck and was satisfied with the results. In the pattern, the sash/belt is attatched, but it would not be difficult to just make it on its own.

    I've also got a vintage accessories pattern set that has similar belts, but I am not going to list that pattern number as I think it would be hard to come by.

    So if you sew and want to have something pretty immediately, this is one option.

    I've seen lots of leather sash belts from the 80s in thrift stores.

    I just got a bunch from my aunt. But what sucks about these 80s belts is that, they were made for your waist! And my aunt was SKINNY SKINNY, just like the rest of my family. And well, I wear my belts on my hips, and they just won't fit. :( :( :(

    Most people wear pants and skirts that fit pretty well, anyway. I would say the majority of belts worn today are worn for decorative purposes, only.

    I think that one made of mother-of-pearl buttons would be pretty easy to replicate, but it would be bloody well expensive to get that many buttons!

    I'm a big proponent of belts of any description, and I must say this site has me inspired. Sometimes I come across large baggies of semiprecious stones and glass beads and wood beads at yard sales. I think I will be laying in a stock this summer if I find any this year.

    I am editing because I went back and looked at the prices, and even if one bought out all of the mother-of-pearl buttons at ALL of the fabric shops in town, I doubt it would total up to $2,900. Yow!

    No, but I lived in the UK for a while and some British colloquialisms stuck to me. Ask, me, just ask me about that clear, sticky plastic you use to wrap up leftover foods. You know...clingfilm?

    Way the hell off topic...people think I am nuts when they talk to me because I have also picked up a some "ebonics" manners of speech from the other women in my office (I'm the token white chick) as well as some seriously country expressions, from my misspent youth in western Nebraska and my dad, who is a repository for colorful and corny witticisms.

    The sound effects, however, are all my own.

    it's so funnyhow companies can go to a store like M&J Trimmings and throw some beads on a string, call it a belt, and over charge for it.

    Any of those belts .. you can find most of the components at M&J Trimming on 39th and 6th Ave.

    Or go here. M&J
