TheGlobinPrincess, thank you very much for your tutorial. it was very easy to follow and my garters turned out nice for a first time, i think  Grin

I have not found yet some garter grips, so the elastics are not connected to anything, but I will add them later.

this fabric was a test fabric, because I am thinking about making this in latex fabric. i'll post some pictures here when I finish the new garters. I am also thinking about making a corset to go with these!  Cheesy

what do you think?

by latex do you mean proper rubber? because really you need special 'glue' & a mini seam roller for latex,  (i suspect i have just revealed a lot about my past!), & a good quality latex to start with

no, I mean that shiny elastic material, maybe it's not called latex, PVC, vinyl, maybe?

Bitter Sweet Girl, i've made garters out of vinyl/pvc before for burlesque costumes, and i'd suggest you alter your pattern to have a little bit more of a gap at the back. the vinyl/pvc is stretchy, and the gap will let you adjust the fit a bit more!

you could also line it in a non-stretchy fabric (i used black cotton sometimes) to cut down on the stretch, but i'd still suggest a bit bigger space at the back, especially at the top.

i can't wait to see what you make!

Aww, forever love! My avorite!
Oh my goodness. Those are so hot. I need to make me some. In hot pink.
Post pictures? You better.

Am I the only one who thinks I am a genius for figuring out this whole snap thing?  I think I'm quite clever...
Love,
Hayley Jane

I think I think you are, but I would know better if I actually did if I understood it.

Are they just like the little tiny snaps?

Thank you for the tute! This is really cute, and it looks pretty easy (especially since you figured it out before I had to do the hard work). Keep rockin'.

i make a lot of mine the same way! :] its kind of cool to attach suspenders to them too, you know, for that "i'm so cool look at my awesome suspenders and thigh highs! " look.
about the snaps at the bottom though, i like to wear thick thigh high socks, and like you said, they won't work with the snaps, i use those big heavy duty craft safety pins for my heavy hosiery. :]
