Upstate, South C...
I’ve always thought riding pants looked really cool, not that I know anything about them or riding horses. I like the seaming, the patches and the slim fit. I started with a basic legging pattern, McCalls 6173, and chopped it up in to pieces to fake the same look. I sewed all the pieces back together again and top stitched with bright blue thread. The blue “patch” pieces are corduroy, the rest of the pants are made of a brown double knit. Probably not the best choice since it wrinkles and sags a bit. I’m pleased with how they turned out anyway. I even made it through my first mock fly front (almost) painlessly.
