Details: This pattern was created from an original garment in Nehelenia's private collection: a suit consisting of frock coat and matching breeches originating from the French Provence, which can be dated to c. 1798 through original documents obtained with the garments. The style is typical of post revolutionary French fashion, with its small skirts, cutaway front edges barely meeting on the chest, a high stand-up collar and large fabric covered buttons.
The pack contains detailed instructions accompanied by colour photographs of the original garment leading you through the process of recreating a truly authentic garment. The frock coat is sewn by hand using period techniques, but can be machine sewn as well. Difficulty is medium to hard.
Includes 6 sizes: Chest 95 - 120 cm = 38 - 48".
