This is a DIY made from ties; actually my first. I think I've been turned off from using ties in refashions because unless you're planning on really tearing one apart, an upcycled tie still looks like a tie. I don't usually like when you turn one item into another item and it's quite obvious that the finished item was once something else (make sense?).

Looking for a pattern for an obi belt. This one is well crafted and has great descriptions of dimensions. Belts, Sewing Tutorials, Obi Belt Diy, Sewing Accessories, Fabric Belt, Diy Belts, Sewing Clothes, Obi Belt Pattern, Sewing Hacks

So, about the obi mentioned here... One side of the belt is solid navy with gingham ties and the other side is gingham with solid ties. So, it's reversible, but you get the same combination of fabrics either way. I don't have any obis and haven't worn one before, so when it came time to make the pattern, I did some guessing about size and dimensions. Finished, it is 4" high at center front, curving down to 2.5" at the side seam. The back piece tapers from 2.5" down to 1". The ties are 29"…
