Reconstructing History #RH904 - 19th Century Men's Frock Coat Sewing Pattern

The 19th century Frock Coat probably began as a military garment, buttoned to the neck with a standing collar. The Frock Coat was strictly for undress (informal) wear at this early date. The dress coat for both day and evening wear was the Tail Coat. Like the Tail Coat, the Frock Coat was worn both single- and double-breasted. The longer Great Coat or Top-Frock Coat was going out of fashion by this time, soon to be replaced with the Chesterfield, Ulster, and Inverness Cape that we still see in use today.

Use our easy-to-follow pattern to make a Men's Frock Coat or Top Coat appropriate for the 1840s through 1860s with narrow cuffs, attached wide skirts, side panel, and optional shoulder cape. Knee-length and long versions included.

Fits chests 34" 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.
