Black Silk Stockings are the ideal accessory for your historical costumes. Made of fine black silk, our plain style black silk stockings come up above the knee, are fully opaque, and will stay up on their own, can be rolled, or tied with ribbon garters. Pair our plain black silk stockings with your Victorian and Edwardian ensembles.
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!
