18th Century Garters

I finally got a chance to get my chemise on and take some pictures of my finished garters. Although I had an irrational fear of the elastic putting too much strain on them to hold up, they've worked perfectly so far.

I never realized how hard it is to try and take decent pictures of your own knees. I'm wearing my chemise (which I'll show in a later post since it's not too interesting by itself) and some modern stockings. I haven't gotten around to making 1700's stockings yet.

And finally some close ups. These were simple and really fun to make. They're also good embroidery practice, I can see myself making a few of these in the future. There is so much more embroidery to come, however, as I'll be adding some to my stays!
