Ever since I made Simon's suspenders I've been dying to make Grace a pair as well. So last month I finally got around to it and I made her some ruffled ribbon suspenders.
The only problem was that before I was even finished with them I knew that I would have to make another pair....out of ruffled lace.
I actually think I like them even better than the ruffled ribbon ones which I kind of love.
And they are easy to make--you just follow the exact same steps except use lace instead of ribbon and 1/4 inch elastic instead of 1/2 inch. Easy!
It's literally a 15-20 minute project.
The only sad thing is...
...as Grace and I were taking pictures I realized that white lace doesn't show up very well when photographed on top of a white shirt. (Even if it looks really cute like that in real life.)
Oh well. At least we still got to go get french fries and soda's afterward so it wasn't a complete loss.
PS---Is anyone else wild about knickers right now or is it just me???
(These are a pair I made for Grace last fall but have several more on the cutting block for this spring---I guess, that is fair warning about some of my upcoming posts...I'll try not to go knicker crazy but I can't promise anything....except that there will be more french fries and soda.)
