Make yourself some Fall-Front breeches!

Breeches from the 18th century look very strange to the modern eye. They’re short, they’re baggy, and they can be the very devil to make. Get a leg up with our pattern, circa 1770s-1790s, based on extant examples.

In the late 1760s the fly opening was replaced by a fall. The fall front provided an attractive, clean line that would remain popular among non-fashionable men until the 1830s.

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; 3 - 7/8" buttons for waistband; 4 - 5/8" buttons for fall 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
