    Very good basic mid to late 1770’s and 1780’s frock coat pattern, the project we thought was going to be the most work went together very well, nice fit with very little adjusting needed, the only thing we changed was the collar, the pattern has a large lay down collar, all tho correct, we wanted a short stand up collar, a fairly easy change. We absolutely love the finished coat, photos at the link below.
