Make a unique garter that reflects you on your special day
I didn't want a pre-packaged garter for my wedding ensemble, so I made my own!

  • Step 1

    Cut your elastic to fit around your thigh (wherever you'll be wearing your garter). Subtract a few inches so that the garter will fit nice and snug.

  • Step 2

    Cut a strip of fabric that is 3 inches wide and double the length of your piece of elastic. Fold in half with right sides in and sew along the edge.

  • Step 3

    Turn the tube of fabric right sides out (I used tweezers). At this point, you'll want to add lace, ribbon, etc. to the tube- however you want to decorate it.

  • Step 4

    Use a safety pin to thread your elastic through the tube, making sure it stays flat. Sew together the ends, add some ribbon-y, button-y flair and whatnot, and you're all set!
