Make a lovely Frock Coat for Dickens Fair or American Civil War!
The Morning Coat or Cutaway Frock Coat was originally a coat worn on a gentleman’s morning ride. The skirts were cut away in front so as not to get rumpled while astride.
In the 1860s, the Morning Coat was most often double-breasted. It was often trimmed with braid, and was typically worn with patterned trousers much like it is today.
