Make Courtney’s 1980s Hot Pink Belt

  1. Supplies: Belt Buckle, cotton or knit fabric
  2. Cut fabric 2.5 x 15.5 inches ( I cut mine at 2 inches wide, and decided it should be thicker but did not sew a new version so yours may look slightly different than my photos, but probably more like the one on the AG site.)
  3. With RST stitch up one side, with the last inch forming a slight diagonal to the edge to create a point.
  4. Turn and press well; the seam can be centered or on one edge, depending how you want your belt to look.
  5. Zig zag stitch or serge the open end closed.
  6. Place this finished end through the buckle, fold over and seam in place, just far enough so your foot does not hit the buckle.

Put your belt over the waistband and bottom edge of the skirt and top for a “dress look” and revel in the $48 plus shipping you may have just saved. You are welcome, Momma!! I put the skirt, top and belt items in my cart. Yes, you get two tops and two skirts and some accessories besides the belt, but if this is a passing phase for your kid (like it was with mine)- this is a great answer for a wonderful, time appropriate outfit for your 18 inch 80s Courtney doll from American Girl. And you can sew as many as you want! Click HERE for the skirt tutorial and HERE for the top tutorial to complete the outfit.
