Reconstructing History #RH940 - Inverness Coat or Sherlock Cape Sewing Pattern

Look like your favourite movie star in your own Sherlock Holmes Inverness Coat. The Inverness Coat is really more of a cape than a coat. Starting as a single-breasted variation of the Ulster, in the 1870s the cape stopped going all the way around the back and was instead sewn into the armholes in the rear. In the 1880s, sleeves were deemed unnecessary and the armhole was cut away to accommodate movement. Thus the flowing outer garment made famous by Sherlock Holmes was born!

This easy-to-use pattern (based on an original tailor's draft from the period) helps you make a fabulous Inverness Coat!

Fits chests 38" to 54". All sizes in one envelope.

Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.
