Spats, short for "spatterdash," are tailored, fancy gaiters. These knee high ones look great with skirts! They were popular in the 1800s. Dancers still wear them sometimes.
If you have more date shoes than date boots.... well, now you're set. Don't let winter temperatures keep you from wearing your best heels!
There are 12 pages of FULL COLOR instructions. I’ve broken down the process into tiny little steps, and included a picture of every little step. There are over 27 pictures. I've included sample pages with this listing.
The spats have two loops of elastic that rest under the arch of your shoes and lace closed with eyelets at the center front. The tongue is stitched down behind the lacing on one side (the outside) so you can tell left from right.
Pattern pages are 8.5 x 11" for easy printing. Pattern pages are black and white and computer drafted. I've included a sample pattern page as one of the photos with this listing.
Etsy makes these files available for instant download after your payment is complete.
