1950s Seamed Stockings


Were colourful seamed stockings available in the 1940s and 50s? Yes! They might have been extremely rare but they did exist Where there's a will, there's a way: as one What Katie Did customer told us, a friend of her mother got fired for being just a little too inventive in the hosiery mill she worked in, adding coloured seams to their standard styles!

Seamed Stocking Reviews


'What Katie Did Stockings are first class quality as always, My wife owns several pairs for day to day use and WWII re-enactments that we attend. So when a friend said that she was looking for something for her Daughters Prom Dress I new exactly where to look to buy her a surprise gift. I would heartily recommend any of this range as we have looked at others but nothing comes close to these in terms of quality or price.' Danny G



'These stockings are beautiful and as I seem to have a lot of forest green in my wardrobe at this moment they go with everything! They have been washed a few times now and still look good as new! Thank you making such wonderful stockings.' Lydia Sawyer
