I saw a pair of spats here and they were so cute that I decided to sew spats too :) I found a pattern on the internet and tried it out with some scrap fabric. I had to make quite a lot of changes, but here’s the result. I’m quite pleased with these. And as you can see, there’s also a lining to make spats stiffer.
tweed, cotton and buttons.
to Sirmigglesworth whose spats inspired me to sew these :)
