I began work on the belt form for my next costume today. Using the pattern discussed in a previous post, I traced and cut two layers of buckram, two layers of interfacing, and a layer of felt. The two layers of buckram will be sandwiched between the two layers of heavy weight interfacing to create the base. The layer of felt will line the belt when it is complete. Next, I will stitch these layers together, trim the edges, and be sure it still fits my hips.
