Plus size belts

5 posts in this topic

My brother wants me to make a belt for him but he is a very large person. I dont have any leather that is long enough to make a belt with a single strip of leather. How can i join two pieces while keeping the belt thin and reasonably nice looking?

Use a 2 ply technique But join the pieces at different places. (Like 2 ply toilet paper, the 2 pieces facing away from each other. Join them @ different places and sew the all four pieces together like a regular sewn belt. Let me know how it comes out.

Get in touch with Springfield Leather, they carry a pre-cut belt strip that is 84" long which gives you more than enough leather to create a plus size belt.  Depending on the actual waist size you may need to go with a two ply design (double thick, standard belt leather).
