The pattern below is one that I copied from an original 1850s frock coat in a private collection. The frock coat was a near perfect fit so I was give permission to copy a pattern from it.

The next pattern I drafted with Devere's. Its fairly similar to the one above. I'm going make a muslin from each pattern and compare the fit.
