Picture of How to Turn Tights Into Stockings

This is just a simple tutorial on how to turn tights, which are frustrating and fall down, into thigh high stockings

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Picture of Materials and Tools

You will need:
1. A pair of tights
2. A pair of scissors
3. A sewing machine (I highly advise not doing this by hand)

Step 2: Preparation

Picture of Preparation

Cut the top of the tights off (the part that goes around your crotch area). Cut the elastic band off of that, and then cut the band in half. Make sure your leg pieces are even.

Step 3: Sewing

Take one of the elastic pieces, put it right sides together with the tight leg, and sew. Make sure you pull the elastic tightly as you're sewing, so it goes around the whole top of the tight leg. Do the same thing for the other leg.

Step 4: Finished!

Wear those new stockings around! I specifically made these so I can wear one white lace stocking with one black lace one, for a more original look.

I can't wait to try it! Did you use 1" elastic? Can it be done without a sewing machine? I do not have a sewing machine, so all of my projects have to be hand sewn-Do you think it will work ok? THANKS!
