another sock question

I know sock questions have come up a lot here, but I have one on a sock commissioner on LJ.

I have been looking at buying a pair or 2 of socks from leine_black , but I'm not sure about sizing and height of the socks. I am looking at buying pair No. 1 Under the Knee Socks with Cotton Lace. When I asked her about the height of the socks, she said that she didn't want to try that type on and stretch them out. And then when I asked about plus size lolita sizing with a big calf size I got no responce....I think I asked her in an e-mail about this too with no responce. My calves are 16" at the biggest part. This commissioner has a +4 postitive feedback on loligoth_dbs, but out of that only 1 of them was a sock commission. 

I'm also buying some BtSSB off the common sales and I hope those work for me too.

I realize the white ones are a little shorter than below the knee, but I am ok with that. I really have been wanting something from BtSSB ever since I won 4th place the English G&LB BtSSB contest and got a BtSSB shoping bag and Alice and the Pirates postcard. It just seemed kinda wrong to me for myself to have a BtSSB shopping bad and not any clothing items. :  /

Sorry for the late response @.@... the calf of the actual sock is only 15 inches. I can make you a topper for your socks, with small press buttons that you can attach to a normal sock.

I will post it by the end of the week, ok?

but the gist of it is that you can take a strip of lace, cut it to the exact length of where you want the topper to fall, add 1 cm, and attach hooks to the ends. i can show you pics later if you like.

ok. is this something that you would have to
hand sew? I only do machine sewing, so I was
wondering if I coudl do it. maybe I could hot
glue the hook and eyes into place.

your e-check cleared my paypal, I will send the JSK out by this Fri at the latest.

Ok. You would have to hand sew it, yes. You could try to hot glue, but I don't think itb would work too well. I could make you a pair, for only the cost of materials and postage, would you like that?
