Make yourself a Proper Victorian Topper!
As the frock overcoat was passing out of fashion in the third quarter of the 19th century, a looser unfitted style of overcoat was coming in. The Sac coat had no shaping at all and flowed easily from the shoulders. It would become a standard overcoat style in the later Victorian period.
Our easy-to-use pattern (based on an original tailor's draft from the period) helps you make a beautiful loose-fitting "Sac" Top Coat!
