Versatility in a 1740s Waistcoat? Absolutely!

Our easy-to-use pattern makes a Men's Waistcoat, circa 1740s-1760s, sleeved or sleeveless. In the early 18th century, frock coats began to be worn open, showing off the waistcoat beneath more and more. We used extant garments and the pictorial record to make our pattern. Put our knowledge to work!
