The attachment of the web 16 to the belt 11 and gar

with the longitudinal edges of the material being sewn
together as indicated at 18 to form a so-called inside
seam and one edge of the web 16 is sewn into this scam
to form an integral unit comprising the belt 11 and the

The improved belt in accordance with the invention is
particularly useful in connection with uniforms such as
dresses and the like, and affords means for shifting the
position of the waistline of the garment to accommodate
?gures of different heights. In the past shifting of the
belt position to provide for vertical adjustment has gen

extends substantially throughout the entire waist line. It
is terminated at points spaced from the edges of the gar
