I’ve made stockings! It was so much fun, I made two pairs! I would probably have made three, if I hadn’t spent a lot of fabric and time finding out how to make them fit me. I used the pattern and tutorial here (that blog is awesome by the way! I love it!), and the results are as follows:
I am so very pleased! They aren’t perfect, but that won’t show once I’ve got my shoes on.
The Dreamstress, who has made the pattern, have slimmer legs than me, however the pattern is very easy to enlarge, you just move it a little furter from the fold. I did not include the elastic at the top, I will keep them in place with garters.
