Pattern by: Country Wives
Sizes adult 34, 38, 42
The cut of men's trousers changed as rapidly as any garment in the late 18th and early 19th century. The front of men’s trousers in particular rose to meet the lower edge of the waistcoat. This pattern includes an angled fall front, a triangular shaping yoke below the back waistband the placement of suspender buttons and back eyelets. The trousers of the early 19th century fit with much less easing of earlier trousers and knee breeches. 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".
