5. Sew now along outside edge of the outside stocking pieces together. Leave a 10 or more cm opening along one side for turning and also leave the top of the stocking open.

Now sew the lining stocking pieces together leaving also the top open. Turn the lining stocking so that the right side is on the outside.

Matching edges at the heel and toe, insert the sewn lining inside of the outside stocking piece. (The right sides are now facing each other). Pin along the top edge and now sew the top edge closed.

6. This part is tricky. Through the 10 or more cm opening along the side, pull the lining through and then pull the reverse (good side) of the stocking through. Once sewn, turn the outside stocking piece to the outside. Insert the lining correctly now into the stocking by matching heel and toe.  Press your stocking in form if necessary. Fold the cuff down and add a hanging loop on the backside of the top of the stocking.
