This is a DIGITAL sewing pattern for a long coat or frock coat from around 1850 from the area of present-day Middle Franconia.

The pattern was created in collaboration with the Trachtenforschungs- und beratungsstelle des Bezirks Mittelfranken. (Research and Advisory Center for Traditional Costumes of the Middle Franconia District).

This specific coat can be located in the southern region (Heidenheim and Wassertrüdigen) based on physician reports and illustrations commissioned by King Maximilian II in the 1850s.

The pattern is based on illustration number 55 from the Landgericht Wassertrüdingen. The coat is close-fitted to the body and cannot be buttoned up at the front. It is held together with a fabric clasp in the chest area to showcase the conspicuous vest worn underneath. An optional dart on the side achieves a more fitted silhouette as popular during the Biedermeier. The coat can be sewn with or without a collar. Instructions for three different sleeve finishes are included, with and without cuffs, and in the late 18th-century style.

very good quality pattern

Would hawe been great to recive instructions for hirstorical sewing method - but blog-post for that is super-helpful too. Love the different sleeve cuffs-option. Using the pattern as a base (drafted it so that the front is colosed - sewing is not finished).
