I found a pattern that I think will work very well for the waders:



https://www.twigandtale.com/products/rainhaven-overalls-men?variant=32218024378419



The seat and knee patches are optional, as are the pockets, and the front could be easily modded to be one piece. The directions come with video tutorials- and they even include directions for sealing the seams so they are waterproof, lol.

A little bit on the sweater that may be of use:

The full length ref, and behind the scenes pictures show that the sweater was a greenish grey rather than the darker green of the Amazon sweater. Terry added some additional screen grabs from the Gallery episode that included our cozy dude.

I ordered the grey Amazon sweater, overdyed it using a formula formula from RIT's site, and got a pretty close match. Results, refs and formula below if it is of use to anyone else:

In addition to the mods mentioned above, there are some sealed seams on the inside thighs of the foulies. There are three parallel seams visible that run straight down the inside front of the thighs and then angle down at slightly wider than a right angle towards the back.



I also found some possible fabric?

The nylon cire swatch from Mood looks the closest to my eye. I think if anyone wanted to use this they would want to consider flatlining it because it feels super thin.

The vinyl swatch from Fabric Direct is a bit heavier, but still thin. The "wet look" is a bit off and the drape isn't quite right, so I think the Mood fabric may be closer? I would recommend ordering swatches if people are considering ordering it to make their own.

Great finds on both accounts! Awesome job!
