I come from a family of amazing women, each an accomplished seamstress.  My maternal grandmother, Laura Lee Alice, was one of the most stylish and creative women of her time.  I was inspired by her attention to detail and her deep passion for creating beautiful things by hand.   So much of my creativity comes from her, my mother and our Southern heritage.  I am truly blessed!  

We are a small team of media artists working with some of the finest and most delicate silks, laces, ribbons and vintage fabrics.  Our heirloom quality garters and accessories are finely crafted by hand with the highest attention to detail.  Our goal is to create something in your style, heirloom quality and will last for generations.  Our garters are beautifully finished inside and out.  We use the tiny 1/8" French seams when we are sewing organza and fine fabrics.   Also the design on our lace trims are matched if at all possible. Any beading, pearls or crystals are hand applied.  We only use Swarovski crystals, cultured pearls, glass pearls and beads.  FYI, the exceptions are some of the purchased trims, vintage items and buttons that we may use to complete the look we want.

We try to limit the quantity of each style we design, it may be up to four but usually it is just one or two.  The exception to this is our most popular garters.  We try to have them available on our website at all times if possible.  We do not operate on a production schedule.  Our garters are individually made with emphasis on quality and style.

Getting feedback from our amazing customers not only helps us improve our website but our products as well.  As wedding dress styles change, so do colors.  We are constantly obtaining new colors so we should be able to match just about anything.   #HeirloomQualityGarters  #CraftedByHand #VintageLace

To be Southern is a frame of mind, a sense of being and proud of who you are.  To me it's about sweet tea, gardening, good food, family and friends.  True Southerners help one another, give freely of themselves and live life to it's fullest!  -Lee 

Some of our laces that we offer.

We have hundreds of lace styles and ribbon colors.  I have collected lace for many years and there is nothing like the sheer luxury of antique lace.  Check out our Echoes From the Past Garter Collection.  If you are trying to match a garter to your dress, send us a closeup of it along with the color or even better, a bit of fabric.  If necessary we can send you a small swatch of ribbon and/or lace.  You can also click on our Only For You web page to order a measuring kit and ribbon samples.
