Fly-Front breeches? Yes, please!

Breeches from the 18th century look very strange to the modern eye. They've got weird shapes, they're fiddly to adjust for wear, and they can be challenging to construct. Use our pattern, for fly-front breeches, circa 1730s-1760s, based on extant examples, and get a leg up! 

Fits waists 28"-50". 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 or heavyweight silk, lightweight silk or linen for lining

Notions: thread; 2 - 7/8" buttons for waistband; 2 to 5 - 5/8" buttons for fly closure; 10 - 5/8" buttons for leg closure; buttonhole floss

Yardage Requirements: 
outer material & interlining: 2 yards at least 60" wide
lining: 2 yards at least 60" wide
