DIY: Baroque belt

DIY baroque belt by Style Slicker

My obsession with baroque and embellishment hasn’t yet faltered my mind, re-using the same materials in previous DIY projects such as these flower motifs from broken bits of necklaces (would you believe it or not, they were from Primark) have shared a fair bit of love, and it will be the last.  I made this baroque belt especially to go with this ASOS peplum top, worn at the Dior x Printemps event in Paris last month, I must admit this is one of my favourite DIYs I ever done for the blog.

What you’ll need: 2 metres of black velvet (2 inches wide),  a handful of medium size pearls, gold flower motifs in variant sizes from broken bits of jewellery, scissors, black cotton thread and a sewing needle.

1. Fold the velvet belt in half, crease the middle fold line, this will be your reference point.  Be sure to leave a mark or crease line of each side of the belt where the embellishment ends.

2. Place the flower motifs and pearls onto velvet belt to create a sequence, once you are happy with the placement, sew the pearls and flowers separately with a sewing needle and black thread, adhesive is strictly forbidden.

3. When you’re done with the sewing, take a time to admire your handiwork.  Find a lovely top ideally a peplum top like here to go with the baroque belt.
