One of the tips you frequently read for busty gals is to buy clothing in a size up to fit your boobs, then get the waist tailored. Or, if you can’t get it tailored or the waist is only mildly big, then belt it. However, that belt tip requires that the belt actually stay snug. And unfortunately, several of the belts I own are fabric-covered slide belts with no grommets, so they don’t stay tight.
I got tired of constantly tightening those belts, and I can’t really replace them with grommet versions since most of them came with a dress that they perfectly match. So this week, I turned a slide belt into a grommet belt. Now I can adjust it bigger for bloated days, but it stays tight when I want to cinch in my waist.
Here’s how I did this easy and cheap project…
Supplies you’ll need:
Eyelet/grommet tool and matching grommets (purchase the kit here, or just the tool here)
Small, sharp sewing scissors
Chalk or marking tool of some sort
Belt buckle cover kit (this one was only $3.90 on Amazon)
Pliers (which I forgot to photograph below)
