Did you know we make all our garters from scratch? This means that if you like a design but would like a different colour bow or embroidery then that can happen!
Make a note when ordering of the changes you would like and we will make it happen!
An example is below. Nova has beautiful blush pink pearls & ribbons but these can both be changed to any colour at all. We literally have hundreds of different shades available. Be adventurous and have 2 or 3 colours!
This is a special tartan set I designed & made for a lovely customer. Made using 'Johnstone' tartan which was supplied to me by my customer. The dolly bags are lined with an ivory satin with the outer layer in tartan. The petals on the flower are hand stitched to form the matching flower with navy stitching. Perfect for the brides 'soemthing blue'. To finish the set off is a bridal pin with a lucky silver sixpence and matching satin bows.
If you would like something made especially for you using your fabrics please do contact me. Together we can come up with designs which will work for you.
Hi, I hope you are all keeping well & staying safe during Covid-19.
Several weeks in and it's all still so surreal. I'm lucky that I live in a lovely quiet village in West Butterwick, Lincs, away from too much hustle & bustle. Just me & the doggy. I have a large workshop attached to my house. Many years ago it was infact the village post office, so plenty of room and no need to travel to work!
Work, although quieter, has carried on pretty much as normal. A lot of my weddings are being postponed for several month's, most until next year.
For anybody that has had a wedding garter from me with a wedding date embroidered but are now having to postpone I can change the embroidery for you for a small fee to cover costs & postage. Please do get in touch if you would like this.
If you have any questions regarding orders or delivery times please do contact me, I'm always happy to help.
The dog and I are enjoying lots of countryside walks, the odd bbq or two and a little gin. (That's me drinking the gin, not the dog!)
For now enjoy the sunshine & extra time spent with family and most of all stay safe.
I'm often asked if I can make a design using an item of clothing from something very special and the answer is yes!
Jade asked me to incorporate her grandmothers dress into a garter for her daughter's wedding. Jade decided on 'Tilly' blue lace garter and I set to work. I managed to use the belt from the dress as it was a long enough fabric to use without having any joins in it. The dress itself was a beautiful blue floral organza, gorgeous but very slippery to work with. I've trimed the blue lace with Swarovski rhinestones and then added the organza running through the centre of the garter. The result was lovely and I had a very happy customer who sent me a wonderful review on guest book page.
