    Cute! Gaiters are longer/taller- spats are the shorter version! I sell spat patterns in my Etsy shop!

    I love wearing and making them!!

    Gaiters or Spats? http://sartamexicana.blogspot.com/2009/02/spats-or-gaiters.html This began my journey into the gaiter- spat world!

    Hey I planned to make more or less the same but with wool. With my poor English I thought these were called gaiters… Yours are very nice!

      Oh, gaiters is just another word for the same thing. English likes to do that.

    These look great. I’m dying to try making spats. Did you draft the pattern yourself?

      I found the pattern on thankyoufornotbeingperky.com. I had to do some searching to remember where I got it, which is why I didn’t have it listed in the description. It’s a free download, so have at!

    I want to see the whole thing! I’m so excited just from the bits you’ve shown so far. Your craftsmanship is superb. DO NOT tell me you pleated the white ruffle edging on those by hand.

      You’ll all be relieved to know that the pleated edging you see is a pre-ruffled trim that my grandmother bought on a roll, and then gave to me with all the other trim she isn’t using any more.

    slkdfsfjnnhfsgsfhj. As the kids say. Scrummy! Did the edging drive you mad? Beautiful. Well done.
