I have no idea how to make a belt. However if no one answers within the next day, I'll PM the Tahitian dance members to come help you out.

Hiya =o)
Celebrian PM'd me.

I've only made one belt before, but it SURE DOES show off the hips . . . video at youtube.com . . .#

The girl in brown is the genius who came up with the idea of using pre-made tourist gift grass "hula" skirts and cutting them short. They're not very bushy by themselves, so we tied on the stuff we'd cut off and some store-bought raffia in between the existing knots. It takes a while, but you end up with this lovely, bushy thing you can tie on over your pareo! (Oh--and two of the girls chose to trim theirs so they were nice and even, but I left mine BIG, and you can see the difference.)

Good luck!
