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.
