- sewing machine
- your choice of lace (lengths t.b.d.)
- your choice of ribbon
- thread that matches the ribbon
- 1/2″ elastic
- large safety pin
- measuring tape
- charm or button accent (optional)
Everyone is different, so follow these easy steps to find the length that your ribbon and lace should be. Start by measuring the circumference of your leg (distance around the area of your leg that you want to wear the garter), in our case it was 18 3/4 INCHES. To have the perfect amount of gathering for your garter, add your number plus + 7 INCHES. So for us that was 25 3/4 INCHES; cut your ribbon and lace to your specific number. Then for the elastic, take your first number and minus – 3 INCHES; for us that equaled 15 3/4 INCHES. This will ensure that your garter won’t fall off your leg!
**Optional: do a zig zag stitch along the cut ends to finish it.
