To Determine the Belt Size and Stitching Area:
- Measure a belt that fits from end of the buckle (including the buckle) to the hole most often used. OR
- Take Pant Size and add 2 inches (38" pants would be 40" Belt Size).
- Stitch 4 inches less than the Belt Size - which will allow for the leather to be added during finishing
- Leave 1.5 to 2 inches on each end to be attached to the leather during finishing.
For 38" Pants, Belt Size would be 40. Stitch area would be 36 - leaving 2 inches at each end for finishing
The sides of the belt will need to be bound with a binding stitch. There are examples of this stitch on You Tube.
I have had difficulty finding the leather for finishing. However,
sells a belt for $5.00 which you could purchase for the leather buckle and tab. The name of the product is: Small Mens Fabric with Leather Tabs Casual Golf Belt.
