Men's Regency Tailcoat with Five Collar and Lapel Options. Period 1810 - 1830
This tailcoat has a waist seam and is double breasted with
the bottom two buttons meant to be buttoned. When buttoned
the collar and lapels bow out to make room for shirt, cravat,
and up to two vests. The collar stands approximately 3 inches
tall at the back of the neck when folded over. The front of the
coat is cut broad and the back narrow, forcing an erect stance
or may even throw the shoulders back. The fit is very close.
The sleeves are very long, meaning to end at the wrist or
longer, with the cuffs adding another 3 inches so that the
sleeves with cuffs end at the knuckles of the hand. The sleeves
fit very closely except at the top where they are puffed and full.
The shoulders are cut very narrow. There are two separate tails
that overlap at center back. The coat has an inside breast
pocket and there are two tail pockets. The back has two pocket
flaps that are only decorative. View A can be made with any
wool. Views B, D, D, and E have a collar and lapel that must be
made with wool that does not ravel or ravels very little.
View A lapel is a simple notched collar, which could be made
with the upper collar of velvet if desired. View B is a small
"M" notch. View C was called a "Lark's Tongue" notch and
is very pointed. View D is a wide "M" notch. View E is a long
touching "M" notch. The instructions have both period and
modem (theatrical) tailoring instructions. Information about
fabric, interfacing, lining, fit, and supplies sources are
included inside the pattern.

Wool 12 to 24 oz. This type of fairly thick, felted wool
can be called Melton, Coating, Pilot Cloth, Doeskin,
Broadcloth, or Flannel. Sleeve Lining and Pocketing:
Bleached Muslin or modem lining fabric.

Chest Interfacing: Linen canvas or modem hair canvas interfacing.

Collar and Front Facing Interfacing: Wool Melton or
Linen Canvas or modem hair canvas interfacing.

Optional inside lining: Silk Faille or modem lining. Notions:

Reviewer: Frank Smith from Westbrook, ME United States  
Received pattern quickly and have been reading and rereading it since it arrived. Instructions are super clear to understand. Looking forward to making more than a few of the vests to add to the wardrobe.

5 of 5 Just great! August 20, 2017
Reviewer: Daniel Sanders from Cleveland, TN United States  
Pattern came very quickly and, while I haven't started my mock up in cotton muslin yet (because I'm still deciding on fabrics), I've read it over and the instructions are crystal clear!

Reviewer: Roger Allen from Rainbow City, AL United States  
This pattern set looks amazing. I haven't made it yet, but every other pattern I've gotten form Laughing Moon has been great. Looking forward to using this pattern for period and steampunk costuming.
