    What’s the best way to hand-sew the little belt to the dress in View A? A blind stitch on the top and bottom? Can’t figure this out…

    Hey Kelly,

    That little belt is meant to be three dimensional like a little tube, so I’d suggest just tacking it in a few places along the seam. Or you could also use a catchstitch so it can move and stretch with the wearer:

    Thank you, Liesl! I took your advice and it worked beautifully. I love the three dimensional nature of this belt.
