    RE: [RC] pattern for half chaps? - Marlene Moss

    Thanks all!  I got my pattern from Suitability today and can hardly wait to get to work.  As soon as I get the instruction manual for the many decades old sewing machine that I bought!

     could use your araits as a pattern also. lay flat , use newspaper to mark it.I made a pair off  of my suede ones. That little flair in front is important, or you can cut a triangle.Velcro works great. Just make sure you sew leather onto the velcro for strength as the velcro by itself seems to get worn with time.

    Suitability has a half-chaps pattern:
