I made these Gaiters for my husband. The bottoms of jeans were always getting soaked from the snow and rain. I found the pattern online from a store in Corvalis, Oregon. They were easy to make, but it still took about two weeks....LOL But if I would have stayed on them it probably would have only taken a day or two to complete.

It is a waterproof shell with a canvas lining which I plan on spraying some waterproofing on them later today.

Nice work! Gators are a MUST in wet weather, and these look great. What company did you get the pattern from?
