Not sure where to post this, so I thought I'd try the super creatives first...

I'd like to make myself a couple pairs of stretch schooling tights, and I've looked at Suitability and Jean Hardy patterns. Both show breech patterns with fly fronts, etc, but I'd like a simpler pull-on stretch design similar to the Irideon RTW line. I know I could probably copy the one I have, if it comes down to it, but I was hoping to find a pattern with the construction steps spelled out. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Not exactly what you're looking for in terms of seaming, but you could try modifying the tights/leggings patterns from Green Pepper.

Also, Lola Gentry has a pattern for tight-fitting breeches with no waistband and side and ankle zippers which could be eliminated with stretch fabric.

Good luck!

Thank you! Neither company showed up in my search, so this helped a lot. In the end, I ordered the dressage breech pattern from Lola Gentry...I haven't found a good-fitting pair of breeches ever, so I think they might be worth trying to custom fit. I might get some good stretchy denim to use as the muslin trial.
