Size 28-42 Man’s Trousers High-Waisted 1790-1810


Pattern by: Kannik’s Korner

Made in the USA

This is the first good pattern for fall front straight trousers currently available and was worn by common working men and some gentlemen. The waist was rising at the end of the 18th century to just above the natural waist (above the hip bones). Included are directions for making closer fitted legs, variations in fall binders, optional watch pocket, directions for braces (suspenders), and fitting for those of us with bellies. In The Providence Gazette of 1796, “RAN AWAY . . .  an Apprentice BOY . . .  19 Years of Age . . .  had on and carried with him . . .  two pair of Towcloth Trowsers”.
