Bow Belt for a Wedding

A very dear friend of mine got hitched last weekend and I had the honour of making... No, not the wedding dress, silly! But a bow belt to adorn the wedding dress. We saw one just like it when we went wedding dress shopping, but when the shop assistant announced it was £125, my friend gave me a look, I gave her the wink, and I made it for her instead. I made it using a bright pink silk to match her petticoat, fascinator and shoes. The design was based on the bow belt I made before (here's the tutorial) but with an extra snazzy bow. It was a wedding, after all. Doesn't she look GORGEOUS?
