Curvy fit or custom fit breeches?

Short version: Does anyone have any recommendations on breeches that are "curvy" fit or made-to-order for less than $200?

Long/rant version: My least favorite part of horseback riding is buying breeches. For the past 2 or 3 years I've ridden in the same pair of breeches 95% of the time, and not surprisingly, they've finally developed holes and need to be replaced.

Unfortunately, the style of breeches that I had (Goode Rider Elite Rider knee patch) have been discontinued and I'm having a really hard time finding a new pair of breeches that doesn't gap horribly in the back. In non-horse clothing, I can usually fix this by getting "curvy fit" jeans, but there don't seem to be any curvy fit breeches... at least none that are advertised as such. I'm not looking for plus size breeches, just breeches that aren't made for someone with the figure of a 12 year old boy.

I'm also short, but I know that I will never find breeches that are both curvy fit AND petite.

Custom breeches could, of course, be both curvy and petite, but as these are for everyday schooling, I really can't spend a ton of money on them. I noticed that SmartPak has custom breeches, but the example they show isn't terribly stylish, they don't have pictures for many of the options, and the pictures they do have are tiny, so I'm really not sure what I would actually be getting... (Mini rant: I'm not sure how they expect to sell any of these with such a lack of images!)

I have a laundry list of features I'd like the breeches to have, but for now I'd settle for (1) fits (2) knee patch (3) pockets

:sigh: Clothing shopping makes me so cranky. One day I will be rich and will just hire a tailor to make everything for me...

From memory Dublin do a curvy style.

I found a local lady that makes custom jods/breeches in ANY COLOUR they're amazing! From memory I think I paid $114 for custom made show stickybums.

Is there something local to you?

Looking at the site it looks like she might post them over.

She's a bigger lady herself which is where she got the idea!

I have the opposite issue. I'm tall enough (and skinny to boot) that I find breeches difficult to fit for! When schooling though, I wear riding/schooling tights. I don't need pockets or zippers. Just some pull on, sweat wicking tights with knee patches. They feel like pajama bottoms to me, I can wear them all day, even in the dead heat and humidity of the summers in the south and mid south. (I wear devon-aires schooling tights. I tried their x-wear hipsters, because of the pockets and low rise, and they don't fit my (lack there of) butt).
