This poor post has been sitting unpublished for years. I love the look of a cinched waist: it’s one of the few style devices that keep me from looking pregnant on any given day. Below are links to three really good obi belt tutorials.
- Simplicity has instructions for 2 different styles of wide cinch belts. They are not exactly obis, but will do in a pinch.
- Craftstylish has a good article on a 1 hour obi-esque sash.
- Adventures in the Art of Sewing has a very nice tutorial as well.
