i have been coveting this see by chloe belt for some time, but could never bring myself to spend over $150 on a belt.
so during a recent afternoon when i was feeling crafty, i decided to try making one. upon closer inspection, i figured i could just make a detachable bow. then i could attach it to a belt i already had, and turn the buckle to the back.
after a bit of trial and error, this is the pattern i came up with. i placed the pattern on some scrap leather i had (from my bookbinding days in college) and cut the shape out using a surgical scalpel (be careful if you want to try this at home!!!).
