Adorn BONUS: Jul Belt

Jul Belt
It's time for Adorn's first bonus pattern... and it's a belt! 

This design was born at TNNA when I fell head over heels in love with the Jul Designs booth.  (remember: I used one of their shawl pin donuts in Beignet?)  I saw these floating buttonholes and just knew they would make the PERFECT belt buckle.  I worked out a pattern that creates a dense fabric with slipped stitches and yarnover's going down the center so the closure can attach.  And of course I had to do a second version with beads, because that's what Adorn is all about, right?

Another favorite part of this design was setting up the photoshoot.  I knew what style skirt I wanted to show the Jul Belt on and realized that my friend Kate designs exactly what I was looking for! Luckily she agreed and we had a great time choosing colors and styles that fit the image I wanted.  I just might have ordered a shirt for myself before the shoot was over... go take a gander at her shop, Woolen Moss, her clothing is wearable, comfortable and stylish, what more could a girl want?
