To reinforce the point at the end of a fabric belt, add a collar stay from a man's shirt to the tip, enclosing it in the belt as you mitre the fabric. This is especially helpful for a contoured belt made of interfaced fabric where the stiff belt interfacing (the kind that comes on a roll) doesn't work.
