Hi everyone,

I just wanted to ask if anyone would know a good source for patterns for late 18th early 19th century English military coats.
I am not looking for anything specific, but a historically accurate pattern would be appreciated if to be had.

Cheers,
Peter

Is a good start. I have some of their patterns, and they are according to my experience they are generally OK to use as a base, but instructions are somewhat terse and you still need good sewing/tailoring skills in order to use them to good effect.

There is nothing quite as sad as a one man conga-line...

Thank you very much Bjorn, will definitely have a good look at them.

Out of curiosity, does anybody have experience with J.P. Ryan patterns? (http://www.jpryan.com/)
