Using a pair of ladies knee socks from the Dollar Tree I made these tights in about 30 min.
The technique you use I think depends on the sock design for mine I used both socks.
To determine how long they needed to be I held the sock up to the doll and held the sock in place as I wanted the knitted band for my bottom hem, and measured up the doll to allow for a the waist band... I allowed 1/2 to fold over and then cut for lengh My cut was about 3 inches from the heel of the sock
Then I measure for the front seam from the dolls waist to her crotch ... on mine this was 3.5 inches.
I sewed a seam from the waist to the 3.5 inch mark - done for both pieces front and back
I folded my waist band over .5 inch and stitched it
Then join front to back
matching crotch and legs/front to back stitch along entire inside leg seam
No hem needed as I used the pink knit band on the sock as my hem ...
tights for ONE dollar !!
