I have never sewn men’s clothing before. I much prefer the graceful sweep of the skirt on women’s gowns. However, this summer Mr. B convinced me that I had what it took to sew him a frock coat. He has a dark brown wool frock coat already, but that is much too hot the majority of the year, so cinnamon worsted wool was purchased from B&T. We used a modified regimental pattern, but it was basically a replica of the coat he already had. As with any project, especially the first time you sew something, there are always critiques. Yet overall, we are quite pleased with my first attempt at sewing men’s clothing.
