Shirt To Stockings Refashion Tutorial

I made DIY stockings from old clothes again! Last year I turned old holey leggings into stockings, now I used an old shirt to make stockings.

This knit fabric was less stretchy than the leggings, so the stockings are less tight fitting. And because there was less fabric, the stockings are shorter, ending just above the knee. But I like how my DIY knee high stockings turned out! 😀
