Here’s how I’ve been wearing my thigh chain today
I’ve been seeing the odd thigh chain about in the blogging circuits and wanted to make one, but the part that really baffled me was how they stayed up. Maybe I was just being daft because the solution is so simple! Turns out they’re just more decorative garters, but I figure you could attach one end to a safety pin and pin it to your shorts so you don’t have to deal with the elastic round your leg (I feel like some people would find it annoying or difficult to get used to).
But anyway here’s the one I made and I posted a tutorial so you can try it for yourself. All my supplies (except the elastic) are from this eBay seller.
Play about with designs and chain styles, there’s plenty of inspiration online, just google image search ‘thigh chain’ and there’s tons of ideas for you to try. Use up your old broken jewellery parts to make something entirely unique.
Easy peasy DIY thigh chain.
I used elasticated lace, but you can use elastic, an old headband, a garter. As long as it’s elasticated and it’ll stay up, you’re good to go.
I will most likely be making these up to sell on eBay, so check out my page for this and other handmade jewellery.

Friday: these used to be flared jeans, but an old Primark bag broke and I thought the material would be fun to re-use so I got busy on the sewing machine and improved both items.
Also: bralet from Topshop, dip hem tee from Primark, bracelet and scrabble tile necklace made by me, tights by House of Holland.
Tuesday: These shorts used to be grey chord skinny jeans (Fashion Union). I cut them quite long and dyed them blue, then used a grater to distresss them.
Also: beaded bracelets from Topshop, vest from H&M, grunge tights from eBay
