Black Openwork Silk Stockings are the perfect legwear choice for your historical impression. Made of quality black silk, our clocked black silk stockings feature of tone-on-tone woven clock pattern, come up above the knee, are fully opaque, and will stay up on their own, can be rolled, or tied with ribbon garters.
Choose our clocked black silk stockings for your Victorian and Edwardian ensembles, to add period accuracy and detailing to a well-turned ankle.
Made in the U.S.A.
See our tutorial about how to seam the stockings or to reduce excess footage for small feet. If your legs are wider than the max stretch listed below, cut the top band off, fold the edge and finish with loose zig-zag handstitches, and wear with a ribbon garter for an excellent historical touch!
