* Measure waist & cut sash/ribbon accordingly, leaving about an inch & a half extra on each side

* Depending on what part of the design you want to be visible, fold in/under & stitch in place

* Pull through the metal cincher clasp, fold over & stitch down, carefully hiding the stitches within

* After completing one side, try it on around your waist & readjust if necessary, adding the opposing cincher clasp to the opposite side, repeating steps above. {you may also skip step one, stitching on one side then measuring after}

This is a really simple DIY however, you can make it more intricate depending on the fabric you choose and/or if you decide to line it and hide all your stitching. You can also wear the clasp in the back if you like, for a solid sash-like look in front.
