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:
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.

Material Notes

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.

    The link doesn’t work anymore. It says it’s under construction. Does anyone else have a different link to another pattern we can use?

    Does anyone have the pdf pattern? The link in this post goes to a site that is “under construction” :(

    Perfect! I’ve just been asked to make a pair of vinyl spats for gents boots, and this will save me a whole lot of bother, so THANK YOU for posting your How To and the pattern location.

    I love your ones! Especially the collection of odd buttons! That’s a really cute touch. Mine will be made with poppers.
