And So It Seams…

I can learn new things!

I’d never heard of stockings with seams on the front until I saw these black stockings with red front seams at Stocking Girl — and then I thought they were a new thing.

But a quick search and via The Harmony Club I learned that these are a vintage creation, As shown here modeled in the 1940’s by Wendy Reves who seems to have led a very glam life on those lovely legs. (Reves died in March of this year, but leaves quite a leg-acy behind especially at the College of William and Mary and the Dallas Museum of Art.)

Lots more to look at and love at The Harmony Club, such as the 1962 nylon stockings article & survey, and the delish stockings gallery — so go take a look!
