Description

The paletot was one of the most popular garments of the mid-19th century. Farid Chemoune, author of A History of Men’s Fashion, quotes La Fashion which lamented in 1840, “Paletots, yet more paletots, more paletots still! They have become more fashionable for every class, for every hour of the day, for every occasion.” The paletot is cut with a separate side-body, which makes it fit the body closely. Because it fits the body closely it replaces a frock coat.

The pattern contains a brief history of the paletot from the 1840’s-1870’s which describes the difference between a paletot and a frock coat: hand sewing instructions, alterations and sewing instructions in 11 well-illustrated steps.

Sizes (Chest 34 – 38” = 85 – 95 cm) or (40 – 46” = 100 – 110 cm) per pack.
