My first experience of making stockings. I made two pairs for my husband.

The first is late18th century - beginning of 19th century (no gore) and to be worn with culottes :


But the post is really to show mid. 18th century pair with long gore which is to be worn with this outfit:

I like this item very much because of very beautiful hand embroidery which was designed according to museum items and made for this my project by wonderful Anastasia:


So this pair has 4 silk gores (silk is as for breeches and justaucorps) embroidered with silk thread. All embroidery took about 28 hours.
