STOCKINGS AND ACCESSORIES PATTERN
Sizes Small/Child, Medium/Ladies, and Large/Mens
Circa 17th Century to Modern
This pattern contains three different views of stockings or hosiery in three different sizes: Small (Child), Medium (Ladies) and Large (Mens), which can be thigh high or cut knee or ankle length. There are instructions in the pattern for alterations to the fit. All Views have a seam up the center of the back of the leg. View A has a foot piece that covers the whole of the bottom of the foot for those who do not care for a seam under their heel. View B has a seamed heel and a separate piece for under the instep and toe. View C has a gore that starts under the heel and extends halfway up the calf. The heel and gore are seamed under the heel. There is a separate piece for under the front of the foot and toe. These thigh length stockings have elastic at the top but it may not be sufficient to keep the stockings up. Purchased garters or a garter (suspender) belt may be necessary. A serger is not necessary to make this pattern. Embroidery: The embroidery pictured is not included but is available from Laughing Moon Mercantile on the “Embroidery” pages.
