Suitability 2600 Western Chaps

I've been wanting to make these chaps for 2 years now, and finally made them!

My bed sheet muslin to check the fit. The bottom is supposed to cover your boot heel.

Laying out the pieces to figure out how the zippers attach.

I don't like how low the front straps attach, so I raised them to the top edge of the chap. This is the before picture.

Cutting the fringe with a clear ruler and rotary cutter.

Success! They fit my leg and they are long enough.



Leah looked at them and commented something about I guess you have to wear pants with them! LOL!


  1. Great job - very impressive chaps.
