fabric flower belt

Whew! I'm back. Sorry I have been away so long. Going back to work and getting a toddler ready for preschool has been keeping me busy. I thought I would share something with you that I whipped up last weekend between buying a backpack, finding school shoes, writing lesson plans and cleaning house :)
I had this white shirt from Anthropologie hanging in my closet but I haven't worn it in a while. I actually wore it when I was pregnant. It came with a little thin white belt but I never wore that because of my big belly. I lost the belt so I decided to make a new one and wear the shirt again. I was inspired by the corsage belts at J.Crew. I found the pattern for the flower at Wise Craft. Instead of putting a button in the middle I just drew up the petals and tacked them on the back so the flower was fluffier. I used thin white grosgrain ribbon for the belt and cut it long enough to wrap around twice and tie in a bow. I like that look, it adds layer and interest. Promise it won't be so long before a blog again! Blessings to you all.
