LM202 - Accessories 202 Stockings by Laughing Moon Mercantile.
Includes sizes Small, Medium and Large. Circa 17th C to modern.
This pattern contains three different views of Stockings or Hosiery in three different sizes: Small (Child), Medium (Ladies') and Large (Men's), 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. Fabric: This pattern is designed to be used with 4-way, stretch knit fabric. 4-way stretches both vertically and horizontally. If 2-way stretch fabric is used alterations may have to made to the pattern and the fit may not be acceptable. 2- way stretch fabric stretches only in one direction. Fiber: For modern: Nylon, Polyester, Rayon, Cotton, Silk, Wool. For historical wear: Cotton, Silk, or Wool. Weave any plain or decorative weave as long as it is 4-way stretch. A certain percentage of Spandex (also known as Lycra or elastane) fiber is very much recommended. This elastic fiber is not period correct until it's wide use in the 1960s but without it the stockings may bag and stretch out. Color or print: Striped, Plain, Cut-outs, two-tone and Embroidered, any color. Notions: ½ inch wide elastic in a length sufficient to encircle the wearer's thighs. Optional: A fabric stabilizer such as spray starch or Terial Magic Embroidery: The embroidery pictured is not included but is available
