I love this tutorial from Kate of Vintage in a Modern World! I recently ordered myself some seamed stockings from What Katie Did because they were having a sale so I knew it was worth it. However, I do not know about you, but my stockings seem to snag like crazy and I am pretty sure that I will go through the three pairs I bought all too quickly for my taste.
So this is a fantastic way of keeping my ‘good’ stockings for special events and still having seamed stockings for everyday wear. Do check this post out if you are a vintage gal that relies on her seams…
…I love stockings. They are about a hundred times better than pantyhose in terms of look, feel, and cost (when one legs gets a run, you don't have to throw out both legs!).
When it comes to seamed vs seamless I would always choose seamed. The only problem is that around here real seamed stocking are nearly impossible to find! When I do find some (either in store or online) they are at least $20! Being a university student means that at the moment I have very very little money (stupid tuition...) so spending that kind of money on something I can only wear a few times is not an option.
For daily wear I have some seamless stockings I buy at the Bay for $4 or less. I suppose I could always draw seams on with eyeliner like some ladies did in WW2, but I would worry about getting eyeliner on my dress! Instead I have come up with a simple method to create the look of seamed stockings….
