This is a DIGITAL sewing pattern for a Georgian men´s waistcoat of the late 18th century.

During the late 17th century when the doublet transformed into the coat, the waistcoat developed as an independent garment. Originally the waistcoat often had long sleeves to be seen below the shorter coat sleeves. During the 18th century the waistcoat lost it´s sleeves and became shorter. At the end of the century the waistcoat had a straight front ending at or just below the waist and had a high collar, following the high stand-up collars of the coat.

This sewing pattern shows a single-breasted waistcoat from circa 1790 with it´s typical characteristics mentioned before. It has a cut-on standing collar, the lapels are faced to be worn folded back. The waistcoat has two piped welt pockets and is closed with a single row of small fabric covered buttons.
