If your not a sewing goddess (I am just getting back into sewing after 10 years... so finding my feet again) this adorable deep lace suspender belt is soooo simple to make!  You could even hand stitch if you wanted to.!

What you need:
 Wink Deep sexy s-t-r-e-t-c-h black lace (I used 5 inch deep and almost a meter for mine as I have a 40inch hip)
 Wink 8 Suspender/Garter Clips
 Wink Wide elastic to fit though the clips (I used 2cm wide)
The amount you need will depend on how deep your lace is.  I used 5inch deep lace and wanted a 4inch long suspender with .5inch of stitching space at either end so 10inch x 8 suspender straps = roughly 2 meters of elastic.  I made mine non adjustable (and it fits all my stockings perfectly) but remember if you want yours to adjust, you need longer elastic and those little adjuster thingies!

 Wink Bows, beading, skulls or whatever to decorate (I have started one with eyelet corseting for my friend)

1 - I measured my hips at the fullest part and took off 4inch to allow for the stretch in the lace so it fit snug and wouldn't fall down when pulled by the stockings

2 - Cut the length (minus the 4 inch allowance  Roll Eyes and fold so the patterned side is on the inside..sometimes lace is the same on both sides so it doesnt matter. 

3 - Then sew they 2 ends together (I used a stretch stitch on my machine just to give it that added security and flexability) This will give you a big stretchy lace band

4 - Cut your elastic into your chosen lenght.  I made 6 of mine the same length, but with 2 of them I cut an inch shorter (for the front of the garter belt to keep the stockings at a level all round your thigh)

5 - Take a longer piece of elastic and place it over the seam in the lace.  Tuck the top edge in to make it neat and then stitch in a rectangle around the edge elastic (only the part laid on the lace) 

Putting the elastic up the garter belt rather than just adding it at the bottom adds a kind of soft boning effect and holds you in (I need it!)

6 - Measure equal distances between your straps and pin them into place, not forgetting to pin the shorter ones at the front of the belt and sew as before.

7 - Add your suspender clips to the bottom and stitch.

8 - Add your bit of fancy or leave it plain, dark and sexy!  I added little red bows and tiny black glass seed beads to cover the stitching near the garter clip

And voila.... a Sassy Stretch Lace Garter Belt and it cost less that 5 to make!



Sorry about the poor pic, my battery was going!

And here is the tutorial guide!



Hope you like it, I love wearing it (think my hubby likes it to  Wink... my friend is having me make her one tomorrow for her hot date on Saturday!
