So here was his costume dilemma. Chaps. He wanted a pair of Chaps. So I thought , I can do this, after all what are Chaps, but legs of a pair pants held together by a belt. I found this great suede fabric with a fringe on one salvage. All their costume fabric was 70% off. So I paid less than $3 a yard for the first yard, $1.50 for the second...end of bolt discount. I purchased a unisex pajama pattern drew new lines for the front and back, cut my pattern out of Pellon Craft Bond, the suede was very flimsy and need some stiffener.
Ironed the Craft Bond to wrong side of fabric.
Top stitched the front to the back because of the fringe. Sewed the inseams...
I covered 1 inch webbing with 2 an 1/2 inches of suede using zig zag stitch added two lines for decoration, added D-rings.
