    making cycling clothing

    i know this forum is about bikepacking but a few of you seem handy with a sewing machine. i was looking at rain pants and being 6'-5" and skinny i find it impossible to find any pants that come close to fitting. i was looking into making some but finding a pattern for cycling specific pants is difficult. any of you guys sewn some up?

    you can get patterns from somebody like quest or rockywoods for five bucks. its not going to be specific to your figure but you can modify it to your needs.

    I'd find someone with experience in tailoring or other clothing related skills and modify an existing pattern. If you find one that works through the waist area, you can extend the thigh and calf pattern pretty easily. My son's tall and that's basically what the tailor we know does to get him fit with sports uniforms.
