Breeches were worn by both military and civilians in the 1700s. Usually made of broadcloth or linen, they were also worn in leather and were button or buckled just below the knee or tied with a draw string. In the fur trade the legs were extended but pants kept the drop front, the full gathered seat and gussets in the back of the waistband. Variations are given for knee closing and leg length. Included is a section on Working with Leather and glossary of all the terms that are used. Intermediate sizes are easily made.

Made in the USA, published by Eagle View. All terms are fully defined in the handy glossary. Bold illustrated instructions make Eagle View patterns easy to use, even for the novice.
