So here is how to make a simple garter band for thigh high stockings or decoration.
Step 1: What you will need
- A sewing machine
- Lace and Ribbon, measured to a length 2X your thigh width.
-Elastic (shirring) thread
-Thread that matches your ribbon colour
- a spare bobbin
- (OPTIONAL) The silicone band from an old "stay up" stocking
Making one garter will take just under an hour depending on how quick you work and how thin your thighs are (the thinner your thigh, the more fiddly the work) and whether or not you need to sew on a silicone band.
