    One of the most quick and easy breeches patterns I have ever used. Simple and very straight forward and crazy fast to put together, while still looking excellent upon completion! I have made breeches and trousers for my husband, father and father-in-law from three different patterns and this is the first that didn’t have to have an insane amount of alterations to fit correctly. Highly, highly recommended.

    Let me start by saying making historically accurate breeches are a lot of work, this pattern went together well, the pattern has side seam pockets, alto historically accurate, we desired button back pockets, so we had to do a little re-engineering of the pattern. we recommended making a pair of mock up breeches and then use the pieces to create a pattern specifically for you. All in all a very good basic breeches pattern that we were able to create a historically accurate pair of breeches from….. below is a link to our breeches album.
