The idea of spats just thrills me.
My permanently out-of-sych fashion preferences lead me to believe that you will embrace this trend in about three years. I'll just say it now, and you can store it for future use, okay?
For leather or alternative materials:
Leather, Suede, Skins (among others) or Mood or a host of other stores in the district...
For leather needles and appropriate thread: Manhattan Wardrobe supply among many others...
For leather cement: Manhattan Wardrobe Supply, Mood
For pattern paper or oaktag: Steinlauf & Stoller
Chalk for marking: Steinlauf & Stoller
Buttons: Buttonology, M&J or Pacific Trim
For covered buttons: (*clears throat and whispers... inaudibly)
For alternative closures, if you wanna get fancy: Star Snaps
For decorative flowers (leather and other kinds): Schmalberg Custom Fabric Flowers
Fashion Trims for edging, decorating, or lacing: Daytona
I'll be doing some for myself... Go ahead and hate them if you want... or love them like I do!!! They're just for me, anyway!
