Proper Victorian trousers! 

In the 19th century, trousers went from the simple leg coverings of farmers to proper evening wear for the aristocracy. They changed slightly over the decades of the 19th century, to where men are still wearing basically the same thing today.

Use our pattern, based on extant examples and period tailor's manuals, for men's trousers circa 1830-1900. Includes  the early version's instep strap and the later shaped bottoms.

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, heavyweight silk; cotton or linen for lining

Notions: thread; buttonhole floss; 10 - 5/8” buttons for waistband; 5 - 5/8” buttons for fly closure (optional)

Yardage Requirements: outer material 3 yards at least 36” wide; lining 3 yards at least 36” wide
