Spats tutorial part 1- pattern by Animus-Panthera Spats tutorial part 1- pattern by Animus-Panthera

Due to popular demand, a tutorial for making your own pair of spats, part 1! This is how to make a base pattern, using draping (a patterning technique). If you plan on making a bunch of spats, you can keep this pattern for future use, too.

Part 2 can be found here.

I've never made a tutorial before, so if anything doesn't make sense, just ask and I'll try to explain it as best I can! I've been sewing for a long time and sometimes I forget that some things aren't obvious to everyone, so if I left out anything, feel free to call me out on it.

I didn't take pictures when I made the spats in the first place, so there aren't a lot of pics. Part 2 will probably involve a lot of drawings, but I hope it'll still make sense.

Oh, and this is what a seam allowance is, if you didn't know.

Some spats made with this tutorial! Give 'em a look:

certainly! however, now that the nice weather is here... I find I don't do as much sewing... too much yard work!
