Style For Style: Extra Notches In Your Belt

I recently purchased this Gap Yellow Skinny Lizard Belt ($25) as an attempt to add more color in my closet. I absolutely love it, but there's a teeny dilemma: It doesn't sit too properly on my high waist.


To see how I solved my belt problem,

I decided that one more notch in my belt would do the trick, so I opened up my sewing kit and took out a seam ripper, much like this Dritz Deluxe Seam Ripper ($2).

  • I dug the initial hole in the desired area and tried to get it as big as possible with a seam ripper.
  • To make the hole even larger, I turned to a sharp scissor; I stuck one end in the hole and rotated it until it was as large as the other notches.

Obviously, the thicker the belt, the harder the process. Just be careful not to put scratches on your new belt. May strength be with you!
