Heirloom Garters


Do you have a cherished family wedding gown that you wish to have made into an heirloom garter? Heirloom garters make beautiful gifts that can be passed down through the generations. I have also made pocket squares, handkerchiefs, and even dress squares from older gowns that can be sewn into a cherished bride's new gown.

Please contact me to discuss the creation of an heirloom wedding garter or other item. If possible, please have available a photo and the approximate age of the dress, along with the parts you wish to incorporate into the garter. The condition of the dress will determine what elements can be used. 

Garters may be created entirely from your dress, or from a combination of old and new materials. You may choose to send just the pieces you wish to include, or, if the idea of cutting a precious family dress yourself is terrifying, or you're not really sure what parts you'd like to use, you may send the entire dress.

The price for an heirloom garter starts at $85 and includes one-on-one design consulting throughout the process. Handkerchiefs, pocket squares and dress square prices vary according to size and details. Additional fees apply for return shipping and handling of gown and/or fabric. Heirloom garters and items are packaged in a signature keepsake box, tied with a purple ribbon and wrapped in designer tissue. Turnaround time for heirloom garters and items is about 2-3 weeks.
