Long description:

18th Century Male Tailoring: Theatrical and Historical Tailoring c1680?1790 introduces the reader to English eighteenth century tailoring and covers the drafting of patterns, cutting out in cloth and construction techniques in sequence for the tailoring of waistcoats, breeches and coats.


From choosing the right cloth to preparing for the fitting process, this how-to guide will help readers create beautiful, historically accurate eighteenth century male garments for events and performances. The book contains the following:



  • step-by-step instructions complete with illustrations for students and costumiers who are new to the making of male tailored garments from the eighteenth century;

  • drafting blocks and construction techniques for the different styles through the eighteenth century and

  • patterns, photographs, detailed measurements and articles taken from a variety of male coats, waistcoats and trousers from c1680 ?c1790 from museums and collections.

18th Century Male Tailoring is written for costume design and construction students, fashion students and practitioners who have a reasonable working knowledge of sewing and general costume making, but not necessarily of tailoring, drafting patterns, cutting skills and the making of male garments.
