The following paragraph came from a previous blog entry. I separated it to give it better visibility on the topic of sewing.
This blogger found a tutorial on how to hand sew a full length pair into stockings. A while ago, people only thought of them in terms of not sagging or never buying them again. The way that she and her friends rave about it shows that their attitudes have changed: they are not satisfied with a bad fit, and they are willing to work at it, to get a great fit.
