Fashion project: DIY seamed stocking (first attempt)

I have tried to look for seamed stockings in KL (and even in Hatyai) but to no avail. Until I read a post by Penny Dreadful Vintage which highlighted post on DIY seamed stocking by Vintage in a Modern World. At last, I could try making it myself! Here is my first attempt:

Try on used pair of stockings.

Turn it inside and iron (not too hot) on the sides. This provides a guideline to sew a seam.

Here, I improvised a bit. I layered at the bottom of the stocking with a strip of paper. This made it easier to sew.

Tear the strip of paper slowly. The stocking is ready!

My first attempt. Need loads of practise.

Hope you will give it a try. Happy sewing!
