I wanted the shape of the stocking to evoke an actual stocking, like you would wear. I tried to turn it in at the ankle and point the toe a bit.
The next few people hated it, said it was too rough, too country. Too plain.
I think it needs a little more tweaking, but over all, I do like it. I imagine it with different colored linings, maybe a linen lining. I can also see it in a deep red corduroy with a crisp snowy white lining.
What do you think?
