Embellished stockings

I’ve previously written about fancy foot stockings, but I adore them so couldn’t resist another little post.

If you’re unfamiliar with the fancy foot nylons, I’m referring to stockings that were embellished in some way. They may have been hand painted, blinged up with little gems, flocked or a contrasting coloured yarn may have been woven into the stocking. Stockings were worn by all women on a daily basis up until the mini skirt put them out of fashion, so I’m sure they were keen to make them look more interesting on special occasions.

I’ve never owned a pair of vintage or new fancy foot stockings but I have spent a good chunk of time dribbling over them online. I really love the following videos as they show off the elaborate process of decorating the individual stockings, and then the same stockings being modelled by some very glamorous women!
