I had some old sport bras which I simply do not wear. One of those what was I thinking phases I can only assume. Mine were out of cotton with spandex and had hook & eye front closures. Well, if you turn it upside down so the straps are dangling downward and the elastic band becomes the waist, you're half way there to making a garter belt! Just cut the bra straps where they join at what was the top of the shoulder and you've made the garter
straps. Sew the garter tabs to the bottom of the straps you just cut. That's it. Because the fabric is cotton spandex it stretches 4-ways and the straps are spaced perfectly for garters holding up your stockings. The hook & eye closure works perfectly for getting it on and off and everything gets straightened and smoothed out because it's being stretched.
