I didn’t take any pictures while sewing the spats but they are easy to make so I hope it won’t be a problem. First you need a pattern, which you’ll find here: http://www.thankyoufornotbeingperky.com/?cat=16
The link to the pattern is on the left side of the page. And it’s a pdf file. Here are also pictures of my modified patterns so that you’ll know what kind of changes I made to the pattern. In my patterns the original pattern line is marked in green.
I used tweed and cotton for the lining, but it’s your choise. The amount of fabric needed depends on how long spats you want.
