So let's get started.

  • First you need to take care of the basis of the future product. For this purpose, choose a wide ribbon. In principle, the material for the base, you can choose any. The main thing is that it looks good in a duet with an elastic band inserted into it. A thin ribbon will overlap the base, so it’s best if it is contrasted. The effect of the opposite can be created with the help of color, or differences in the textures of the materials of the base and decorative tape.
  • If you chose lace for the warp, then the thin ribbon should be either a different color or made, for example, from satin. However, the opposite is appropriate.

  • Now it is necessary to sew a narrow strip to the wide strip of the base. This should be done so that the narrow band is in the middle of a wide one. Need to sew carefully. The seams should be located at the edges of the narrow strip. Then, on the back of the product under the narrow strip we insert the gum. The garter should be slightly gathered along the gum. The length of the gum must be measured in advance. It should be such that you feel comfortable, but it does not jump off and does not crush your leg.
  • Give the garter a finished look by folding it up so that it forms a ring. From the inside of the garter, sew its edges together, indenting about one and a half centimeters. Then open the remaining ends and sew each of them directly to the garter. This should be done very carefully so that the seam is not noticeable. After completing the work, look at your product. It should be beautiful folds, and the narrow ribbon is beautifully and exactly sewn.

How to decorate the garter of the bride?

This is where your imagination is given complete freedom! Be creative, as they say, what you want! Use beautiful ribbons, bijouterie, various jewelry. The most important thing to remember when making a garter is that the way it will look depends primarily on the style of your dress.
