>Great 20s and 30s Stockings in Catalogs- or debunking some common stocking myths

>The Vintage Baroness has been posting some really wonderful stocking inspiration lately, as well as addressing the common questions about whether or not they wore fishnets or seamless stockings.  I promised to do a stocking post last week, so I’m a bit tardy, but here it is!  I’ve got a big gap in my 20s catalogs, but here’s some inspiration from 1923 to 1933 for stockings.  At the bottom are my three favorite that I found- wild sports stocking, mesh (probably what we would call fishnet) stockings- I got a chance to see some real ones this weekend at the Queen Mary from Nicole at Flapper Flock on Etsy, and the last are seamless stockings- which I’ve seen in ads and catalogs in the late 20s and 30s.

Undated, but most likely 1933
Plaid Sports Stockings, 1933- Mesh Stockings, undated but probably 1933, Seamless Stockings, 1930.

And just a side note- I finally added a few more vintage patterns to my Etsy store! There’s a few cute 1940s girls dresses and a few other patterns from the 1940s and 1950s.

  1. >Glad you girls like them!Baroness, I agree… I think plaid stockings are seriously needed this fall. I might have to make a trip to Anthro :)Erin, so funny, I didn't even notice them, but now that you mention it… hehe! It looks like fairy tale people come free with stocking purchase!
