Stash Delve: Obi Belt

Obi Belt Bow

For this installment of Stash Delve I pulled out a bright, narrow strip of silk dupioni (I hope I’ve identified this fabric correctly – it’s that bumpy kind of silk that is a bit stiff and holds shapes such as Obi belt knots well!). It’s a lush deep purple-blue (not quite purple not quite royal blue really difficult to photograph).  The fabric scrap was really narrow so it was perfect for mimi G’s Obi Belt free pattern. I followed her video tutorial which was helpful and she even demonstrates how to tie it.

I love how it looks with my favourite LBD (which one day I’d like to clone).

  1. I love this type of project for using up smallish pieces of fabric. The colour on that silk is beautiful!

  2. Love the colour, silk has such a special gleam.

  3. Oh this is very nice, a useful how to and what a great way to add a pop of colour to your lbd, lovely

  4. That is a great idea. I have a small piece of silk duppioni in my stash, maybe I’ll make one too.

  5. Gorgeous colour silk and a great idea for Christmas presents for your friends and family.

  6. Very pretty! That colour is truly to die for. Actually, this is my favourite colour, a grey/blue purple. Love it. I already have a pattern for an Obi belt but have not sewn one yet.
