Introduction: Ruffled Bow Belt

I love this bow belt so much I made 2! Perfectly customizable, not to mention DARLING, and will look great dressed up or down!

For the BELT:
1 piece of fabric that measures 9 in wide by your bra size x 1.3 ish, so my bra size is 34, and my piece of fabric was 44 in long {if you want more scrunchy/ruffly do more, if you want less...you get the idea}
1 piece of WIDE elastic{mine was 2.5 in wide} that measures your bra size {after you thread it through the belt you'll trim 1.5-2 inches off depending on how tight you want it, and where it's going to sit on your body.
Snaps or Velcro, I used 3 snaps in the back, they are using snaps on belts they sell at the stores too...if you do use snaps, I like the "snapsource" snaps because their prongs are extra long and will stab through the layers of elastic and fabric easier, though it is still a struggle. I  like the look of the snaps, but if you don't have snaps velcro would work and would be easier...pick your poison :)
