Cut a warp strip of same material as skirt, 3 inches longer than waist measurement, and 1 1/4 inches on the double, allowing for seams.

Point one end of belt and make the other straight.

Have an interlining of crinoline. Stitch all around the edge twice, and sew two hooks and eyes to equal the waist measurement, and one hook and straight eye or loop to fasten point of belt. Press well.
