A while ago I started noticing lots of cute boot socks with lace at the top (like these) on Pinterest and instantly fell in love with them.
After searching for some and coming up empty handed I decided to make some myself!
And y'all... I do not sew. At all. Like never.
My husband has three dress shirts in a bag that the dry cleaner broke buttons on and I have yet to a. fix them myself or b. take them to the dry cleaner and tell them to fix them
I apparently hate confrontation as much as I hate to sew...
I promise this is a super easy DIY!
Plain boot socks - these are from Target
Lace of your choice - I found these at AC Moore for around $3 a roll
Just start the lace on what would be the inside of your calf and sew the lace into the sock.
You can cut your lace first if you would like - make sure you measure around the thickest part of your calf that it's going to have to slide over and give some extra at the end for good measure.
The hardest part of the whole project is making sure that you are stretching the sock as you sew the lace onto it, after fussing with it for a few I started raiding my pantry for a cylinder shape to help me along, these tomatoes worked great! I still stretched the sock some but this kept it steady for me.
Your sewing doesn't have to be perfect - no one will be able to tell on the outside!
