Lace Socks

If you love little girls in smocked dresses and lacy socks, you need to read this post! 
My girls wear smocked dresses and lacy socks to church a lot in the spring and summer. There is a kids consignment/boutique store where I usually buy their socks. They are a little under $4 and up. I think it's a little ridiculous for one pair of socks. So I thought I could try to make some. You can use a pair of white socks you already have and just buy lace trim. I found this lace trim at Hobby Lobby for less than $2 a yard. I bought half a yard and it's enough for two sets of socks at least. 
 The trim is basically bias tape with lace sewed to the bottom of it. 
 These socks from old navy are really long, they are rolled over twice. I only unrolled it one time, and then I pinned my trim to the end of it. It's really easy, just sandwich the sock between each side of the bias tape then pin it. 
 When I got to the end I left about an inch extra. I started sewing where the red pin is and just went around the sock. You can cut any excess off when you get to the end. Make sure the seam is on the inside of the sock or you might have to add a little something extra to the outside to hide the seam (oops, that's totally the reason why I added the bows!).

 When you are done flip the end seams over and sew together. 
 Ta-da! A lovely pair of lacy socks!
