I tried a technique to sew together some hosiery. Basically I cut off sections of a leg of hosiery, and then sewed the ends together to make 2 simple garters to hold up my flashes, when I wear a kilt or shorts.
Overall, I'm very happy about how it turned out for a garter, but I'm a little disappointed in how hard it is to sew nylon and spandex materials. I have a big respect for people sew hosiery. It's a lot harder than it looks. I'm sure that it takes training and practice before the people can work on the actual products. I'm also sure that a lot of it is done by machine, too.
So far, I've tried 2 techniques. The first technique didn't allow the nylon to stretch. The second technique didn't allow it to shorten.
