If Your Pants Are Falling Down, Buy a Belt




About: In the real life I'm a trainer for adults and a writer. But I'm also a knitter, I sew and I like to reuse things and materials to transform or to make other things with them. And, English is not my mother la...

In less than 15 minutes (more if you don’t find your tools…) you can add belt loop to you favorite pant. It’s more easy than to change the elastic.
You need:
• Pant
• Belt
• Tape measurement (or equivalent)
• Ribbon (or equivalent)
• Scissors
• Pins
• Sewing machine.

Please note that :
- this is my first Instructable
- English is absolutely not my mother language.

French and Spanich version exist.

Step 1: Measure Your Belt

Very important, here the tape measurement is in centimetres.

Step 2: Cut

Cut, at least, 5 belt loops: size of the height of the belt + 1 inch.

Step 3: Put the Ribbon on the Pant

Fold the 2 bottoms of the future belt loops.

Place the future belt loops on the pant, the first on the middle of the back.

Step 4: Sew and See


It’s done!

You can add belt loops to you skirt too.

    What a fabulous idea! I have had pants without loops frustrated when they don't fit right - simple AND charming little accents!

    thanks for posting a fab instructable!
