New! Man's Gaiters or Spatterdashes
For Infantry, Militia and Civilians
c. 1790 - 1820

Includes full scale patterns and directions for seven
styles of gaiters, plus three tongue (piece over the toe of the shoe) variations. This gives a total of twenty-one variations in one pattern. This is a great pattern for styles from the era, and can be easily adapted for other eras from Revolutionary War thru "Steampunk". It can also be used to make gaiters for band uniforms and even hiking.

Gaiters give protection for the stockings, feet
and ankles. For military use, these should be made in Canvas and "Blacked" or made according to regulations. They can be made of sturdy linen for civilians. The height is for mid-calf with info on alterations and fitting. Ladies might even like to try them in linen or cotton for outdoor activities!

Includes sizes S, M, L, 1X, 2X and 3X
with instructions for altering pattern and fitting.
