My first pair of spats.

FW:, originally uploaded by mariposa_73.

I just completed my first pair of spats! Once my pattern was ready to go I looked through my fabrics. Wow! I came up with so many ideas I had to start writing them down.

For my first pair I used a black and white wool fabric. I thought it would be nice to add a section of lace to add some contrast, it was a little flat. So along the lace section I accented it with some black piping. I also used the piping for the top. I finished it off by using three black plastic buttons.

There will be more to come!
Oh! Please excuse me if the picture is not too clear. I am still trying to figure out my camera and picture taking.
