Introduction

If your belt loop on a run of the mill pair of pants has become torn due to an exterior force, use this guide to reattach the torn belt loop back onto your pair of pants.

A belt loop allows the wearer to guide a belt through each loop around their waist as they are wearing a pair of pants. This is to secure the belt in an optimal spot to keep the wearer’s pants on their body.

Before beginning, wash the pair of pants to avoid any dirt being sewn into the pair of pants and to avoid the needle becoming stuck on any foreign object which will make it harder to sew.

Be sure to not attempt a repair while you or someone else is wearing the pair of pants that will be repaired so that you or another does not get pricked by the sewing needle when you sew the belt loop down on steps 4-5.
