Get your Beau Brummell on!

By the end of the 18th century, men's fashion had transformed. Necklines came close to the neck, often with small stand collars. Front openings became straight and double-breasted versions were common. Revers were faced with contrasting fabric that would show if the revers were worn open. The bottom of the waistcoat now ended at the natural waist, in keeping with the cut-away fronts of the frock coat.

Make the perfect Regency waistcoat for the 1780s and 1790s with and without collar. Includes single- and double-breasted versions.

Fits chests 34" to 54". All sizes in one envelope. 

Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.

Suggested Fabrics: wool, heavyweight silk; lightweight silk or linen for lining; heavy linen or canvas for interlining

Notions: thread; up to 20 buttons for front closure; buttonhole floss

Yardage Requirements: 2 yds at least 45" wide (1 yard if making plain linen back)
