This is not an era I am familiar with. But the answer I suspect is that it is off a separate sword belt, ie., not holding your pants up, which would always be worn over your other clothes. So you can get it out when you need it. The exceptions are things like of a cloak. (If you needed a quick defence before you could get your sword simply pull your cloak to the front.) With a small sword the belt doesn't have to be thick, it could be thin. And there would be a sword frog of some description hanging off the belt. So research sword frogs and small swords. Also look at what is available in re-enactment (sword/armour) stores. Some of those will mention their historicalness. Some may just be generic frogs.
