Pretty!!! Again, I’m cheap and didn’t want to pay upwards of $50 for a “vintage inspired” garter that I could make myself for less than $10. So I made this one. I was inspired by cessiejean! I actually found the exact same lace and pearl flower that she used.
I got everything from Hobby Lobby. The rosettes were made using the following tutorial. They are made out of ribbon instead of fabric.
I make a loop that fits my thigh with the stretchy lace and then whip stitched it together. Then I made the rosettes and attached everything by tacking it onto the lace with a needle and thread.
The only odd thing that I ran into was finding the proper placement of the rosettes becuase the lace is so stretchy. They look like they are too close together when the garter is laying flat but everything is smoothed out when its actually on my leg.
