A Quick and Easy Bridal Garter
"I love combing through old heirloom sewing magazines for inspiration for new projects with Cluny Lace. I admit, I am obsessed with Cluny Lace and order it directly from the English factory. The same machines that have created lace for royal weddings from the 19th century are still in operation - most recently for The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton's wedding gown. Think Downtown Abbey and all of those lovely lace Edwardian gowns.
My youngest daughter's upcoming wedding called for a new bridal garter and I was thrilled to find instructions in a 1998 Sew Beautiful magazine. I've modified Tonya Jensen's instructions for the Janome Skyline S7 with really easy and fun results. Enjoy creating your own one-of-a-kind heirloom garter for that special day." - Milinda Stephenson of Milinda Sews
