HE Stockings Linen
From our Friends at Historic Enterprises
Ladies' stockings are made of bias cut fabric and are sized to fit a woman's leg and foot. Pattern is derived from the Bocksten man’s hosen and from hose fragments found at Bayard’s Castle Dock as described in the Museum of London's book"Textiles and Clothing - Medieval Finds from Excavations in London". The attached foot has been redesigned to remove the underfoot seams which a modern person would find uncomfortable.
Because they are not elasticized like modern hosiery, these stockings require the use of garters to keep them up.
