Homemade "No Show" Socks

Make your own "no show" socks.


  • pair of pantyhose with a run
  • pair of scissors
  • needle and thread
  • your foot



Cut the panty part off the pantyhose. Stretch the open end of the cut off stocking over your foot. Cut off the excess stocking off, leaving a seam allowance of 1/4 inch. Sew together the narrow end of the "sock" with a running stitch. Depending on where the run is in the stocking you can get a few pairs out of one pair of hose. You can also wear these under other hose to prevent runs and snags from you toes and heels.

The panty portion can be worn over tights that have stretched out elastic to keep them up.
