    Stockings 1830s- unknown (Country). White cotton knit; silk embroidery on floral-pattern print from instep to ankle. The flat knit stockings embroidered with marguerites and wheatears edged with prints. The body is made of a knit tube, but the sole is cut and sewn in places. In this period, dresses shortened and ankles became visible. Consequently, women favored stockings with embroidery and other decorations around the ankles. Kyoto Costume Institute
