1840s-1900s Chesterfield Pattern
1840s-1900s Chesterfield Pattern

RC937- 1840s-1900s Chesterfield Pattern. Beautiful form-fitting Chesterfield Top Coat based on an original pattern from the 19th century. Fits chests 34" through 54" with instructions for larger sizes. The Chesterfield was named after the Earl of Chesterfield and came into prominence around the same time as the lounge suit or sac coat (what we call the modern suit jacket). Up to this time, overcoats were highly fitted like the garments worn beneath them. The Chesterfield, by contrast, was no waist seam nor side panels and is only moderately fitted at the waist. Along with the lounge suit, and available in single-breasted variety, it became a staple of men's wardrobes from the 1840s through to the present day. Most dress overcoats worn today are of the Chesterfield type. All sizes are included in one pattern. Detailed instructions, period tailoring directions, embellishment suggestions, and historical notes are also included. Suggested Fabrics: coat weight wool. Notions: thread, buttons for front closure. Yardage Requirements: 4 yards at least 60 wide.
