Make a lovely Frock Coat for Dickens Fair or American Civil War!
By the 1860s, the Frock Coat had calmed down a great deal from the extremes of fashion that it exhibited in the 1830s. The skirts of the Frock Coat are narrower than in previous decades. The fashionable Frock Coat of the 1860s was typically single-breasted.
