Knitted with cotton, adorned with an earring and suede ribbon to go with the bride’s purple shoes. The bride has an off-white dress, and I thought that a knitted garter would add to the rustic feel of the whole wedding (not that many people are actually going to see the garter).
I also made a sample for the bride to keep. It’s one of the things I regret about my own wedding, I had made this beautiful beaded garter and never even took a photograph of it. The sample also acted as a handy prototype: in the final piece I decided to do only one repeat of the shale lace pattern at the bottom, in stead of three.
