    Cool SPATS The "new" rage...

    My sis asked me to make her a pair of spats. She gave me a couple examples by one designer that is popular now.
    Has anyone else made any yet?

    Here is a link I googled to see what people are wearing now. They say to use men's suiting as the fabrics.

    This is the first time I have heard of them. Very interesting. Good luck with getting your answer.

    Those are gorgeous spats!! No ... I did not know they were coming back into vogue but it makes sense with the whole steampunk thing going on .. and spats are a fantastic idea ... 1 pair of shoes ... so many possibilities!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    DGD bought a pair at a boutique. By the time I made her a pair in a different color she said they were every where now and she wasn't wearing them. LOL . I think they are adorable for the young girls. I used the Pellon iron on heavyweight interfacing and heavy brocade fabric I found in drapes at the Goodwill. I added the lace to use as eyes for the shoe laces. Very easy to do.
    Got fabric?

    I remember in my favorite book, "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn," the main character's brother who was 10 years old desperately wanted a pair for Christmas. The time period of the story was approximately 1915.

    That's my favorite book too!!! I used to have either a McCall's or Butterick or someone pattern for spats. It also had directions to make spats that went "to the knees" (think go-go boots!)

    ​You did a wonderful job! I am thinking she is maybe into the Steam Punk movement and everything Victorian is very popular. Google Steam Punk costumes and you will see some of the accessories and outfits.
