Obi Belt

So, I am going to a wedding next weekend and I wasn't sure what to wear. I still have a pretty plain green cowl neck dress I made for a theme party back in february.  So, I made a belt to go with it. 
The belt is obi-style.  The fabric itself is pretty slinky (polyester? challis? maybe?). So basically I made a casing from the fabric and inserted into it layers of sew in interfacing with boning.  I ran three stitches (top, center, bottom) through all the layers.  Three skirt hooks and eyes. The tie is bias tape.  I was going to make something but I like the way it looks, so it stays.
