I cannot believe I never shared this garter with you guys! I'm really slipping.
When Nicole contacted me I instantly knew I wanted to work with her. She had an idea of what she wanted, but she knew what she didn't want: no lace, no bows, no froo-froo. Then, she sent me this photo for inspiration.
I love everything about this! Those gloves! That china! A RACCOON! After a little back and forth with Nicole, I came up with this.
This custom garter is made of sooty gray linen stitched into
overlapping patches. I left the edges unfinished because, honestly,
linen is like love - most beautiful when it is raw. The petersham ribbon
brings a richness with its deep honey tones and makes for a tailored
contrast against the grainy linen. Vintage buttons, and cream-colored
baker's twine echo the vintage feel and weave of the bride's sweet wrist-length gloves.
This is, honestly, one of my favorite garters ever. How about you? Are you more vintage and less lace or do you go for something with a more traditional feel?
