This tip provides for belt loops which are completely sewn by machine with all raw edges enclosed neatly, and without any visible bar tacks.

I have a photo tutorial on my Flickr page, starting with this picture. Just click through. If you have questions, let me know.

Oh my gosh, Kay, you've just saved me from "trying to turn a denim tube" hell. :D Thank you!! (P.S. Oops, with denim they're a bit too heavy, but I'll definitely use this technique on lighter fabrics.)

Great technique. I will give it a try. (And I am so in awe of the perfection I noted in your other sewing techniques on that garment)

This is the kind of accurancy and meticulous attention to detail at every step that I strive for (and am still trying to achieve) in my own sewing. I just love how neat the process is and how beautiful a result finished product! Beautiful!! Thank you for the great pictures & instructions.

Thank you for the fantastic tutorial. The photos are so clear, close-up, and helpful. I love the double-stitched ends to the belt loop that fully encases the raw edges.

Great tip and tutorial. I love that they are attached to the completed garment as I almost always forget to include them when attaching the waistband!

I do something similar, but like the idea of stitching down the loop first, so as to control the raw edge end whilst getting the machine in to that tricky bit of stitching under the loop. Thanks, one for the notebook!
