any seamstresses out there?

Hi,
I'm looking to make some cycling pants but I'm apparently more google challenged than I thought I was as I can't find any patterns.I did find some chamois pads to use but no patterns to speak of.
thanks for any ideas.

Green Pepper has some cycling clothing patterns. They used to carry material for the clothing but I haven't checked the website in quite awhile.

mistresses

I prefer to think of myself as a mistress with a needle and thread in one hand and my bike underneath me.
