Shirt To Stockings Refashion

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! 😀

Turn Old Clothes Into Stockings Tutorial

I used the same medieval stockings-inspired pattern that I used for my DIY leggings stockings. I zig-zagged the pieces together on my sewing machine and a ballpoint needle. It isn’t necessary to finish the raw edges because knit fabric doesn’t fray like woven fabric. And I use a ribbon to hold up the stockings.

  1. That’s such a clever use of an old shirt – I never would have thought to do that myself. And, yet, it turned out so well! Those stockings are lovely 🙂

  2. They are darling! You are a magician when it comes to a sewing machine! Thanks for sharing with SYC. I’m sure it’s not intentional, but I’m not seeing a link back to the party.

  3. You are so talented! I always enjoy your posts about vintage fashion! Thank you so much for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. I hope you are having a lovely weekend!

  4. These are super cute and you have inspired me. In Canada winters can be ridiculously cold. I always said their should be a line of warm wear for women that’s pretty. With this post I can make some of my own. Thank you.
